Description

Castoreum-Grade number 1 Beaver Castors, Musk, Aphrodisiac.

This listing is for cured Beaver Castors. Aged for 1 year and ready to tincture for incense or perfume. This batch is made up of ground or chopped castor sacs. They can be tinctured as-is in 95% alcohol for the preparation of Castoreum. Whole sacs can be roughly chopped and yield themselves easily to the alcohol.

For whole castor sacs please contact me and I will send you a photo of the different sacs I have, their weight and price.

This ground Castor is prepared from the dried and aged scent glands of Castor Canadensis, the North American Beaver.
Ground Castor can be used in incense directly for a stunning and rich animalic scent reminiscent of Saffron.

Ground Castor can be tinctured in alcohol for 1 to 6 months and filtered for use in perfume and incense. I find the aroma of the maceration continues to evolve for at least 6 months. They are often tinctured at a ratio of 1 part Castors to 9 parts alcohol for a 10% tincture.

A Castor “Absolute” can be prepared by evaporating the alcohol from the Castor tincture.

Castor sacs have been used for hundreds if not thousands of years in traditional medicine and fragrance arts. They are considered an aphrodisiac and an attractant to both genders. In traditional medicine systems, they were used as an anti-inflammatory, antipyretic, and to treat hormonal imbalances.

Both Beaver genders possess a pair of castor sacs and a pair of anal glands located in two cavities under the skin between the pelvis and the base of the tail. The castor sacs are not true glands (endocrine or exocrine) on a cellular level, hence references to these structures as preputial glands or castor glands are misnomers. (Wikipedia).

The scent drawn from the glands is rich, deep, leathery and woodsy, smokey and sultry. It is a base note and fixative in mainstream and natural perfumery.

Beaver trapping in Canada is supervised by government agencies to limit the damage caused by beavers while maintaining a healthy ecosystem and animal population. Inhumane steel leg-hold traps are banned from use in Ontario and most other provinces.
Beavers are traditionally trapped for their versatile waterproof fur, not for their scent glands.

Beaver trapping has been an important part of many North American aboriginal cultures, where a reverence for nature and her animals is an integral part of traditional hunting and trapping practices.

    i tinctured this at a 10% , its one of the most potent castor i have smelled. it has a wonderful smoked profile , its dried to the bone and hard as a rock. once i grinded it down and sifted it , i was left with a wonderful rusty red powder. i'm excited to see how this scent profile will change over the next 6-12 months. thanks dan , always satisfied when shopping at your store.
