Pure & Therapeutic Essential Oils :

This oil is Therapeutic Grade. Commercial Grade essential oils are usually made of the left over plant materials after finishing the therapeutic distillation process. The commercial grade oils retain a robust fragrance suitable for soap making, candle making, as well as cosmetic manufacturing. Unfortunately, because of the reduced active therapeutic content, the commercial grade oils will not be suitable for aromatherapy or massage therapy applications. Silky Scents™ Essential Oils are all Pure and Therapeutic Grade, not Commercial Grade.

Wormwood Flowers

History: Wormwood (Artemisia scoparia) is commonly confused with Absinthe (Artemisia absinthium). Wormwood is native to Asia and is considered to have toxic components. It was used as an aromatic-bitter for anorexia, as a digestive tonic, to promote menstruation and to reduce fever and expel worms. Wormwood was used in the liqueur absinthe. Prolonged consumption of this drink became known as 'absinthism'. The symptoms of absinthism included auditory and visual hallucinations, hyper excitability, intellectual enfeeblement, addiction and in extreme cases brain damage. It is widely believed that it was absinthe that drove the painter Vincent van Gogh to suicide. In 1915 the French banned the production of a drink called absinthe because of its narcotic and habit-forming properties.
