Cistus Ladanifer
essential oil is one of the most interesting and valuable products that can be obtained from the Cistus Ladanifer plant. There are several methods to obtain this oil, however, all of the producers in Portugal that we know get their Cistus Ladanifer essential oil by using steam distillation. This distinction is important as Cistus Ladanifer resins obtained through other methods can also be steam distilled to produce oils.

Cistus Absolute, also frequently referred to as Labdanum Absolute, is also commercially available. It's much thicker in consistency. The solvent extraction process used to create the absolute is able to capture more of the heavier aromatic molecules than can be captured during steam distillation. To me, the aroma of the absolute is sweeter, deeper and much more balsamic in aroma. Everyone is different in how essential oils impact them emotionally. Your experience with Cistus Absolute may differ.

Labdanum Essential oil in Pharma

The Egyptians, after importing Cistus from Crete, used the resin as a perfume & incense. It is said that in Christ’s time, an incense was made with Myrrh, Frankincense & “Onycha”, later identified as gum labdanum, which is extracted from the leaves of Cistus.  It has been used since the Middle Ages in Europe to treat wounds & ulcers of the skin.  The gum was used for diarrhea, dysentery, & catarrh. Cistus is believed to help alleviate shock from traumatic events, and soothes the heart after a crisis, especially when someone is feeling cold, empty & numb. It’s beneficial for meditation, as it has centering qualities that help one to visualize, and to bring those vision to light. Woodward suggests using Cistus with those who experience a disconnection from their spiritual self & being in fear. Helps to connect to the spirit realms with ease. 

Essence of Labdanum Essential oil   

 

Cistus Essential Oil is an intriguingly complex, rich balsamic oil that is well suited for use as a fixative in natural perfumery and fragrancing applications.
