Our Amber Essential Oil is extracted from the fossilised sap of the giant prehistoric conifer pines of Pinus Succinefera mined from the majestic Himalayan ranges in India. The oil is extracted using the process of dry distillation in which amber resins are melted over high heat (about 350 Celsius) without oxygen to yield a dark, viscous oil with an extremely tenacious smoky, resinous, woody aroma.
The word Amber often conjures the image of the golden gemstone obtained from fossilized tree resin that usually captures plant and animal matter in its formation. Hardened and petrified more than forty million years ago, Amber Resin still contains terpenes and similar hydrocarbons that were characteristic of Pinus Succinifera; making the Amber Resin Oil similar in its composition and properties to essential oils obtained from living plants.
