Sage Oil Dalmatian (aromatherapy)
Dalmatian Sage Oil is a pale yellow, mobile liquid, having a fresh and strong, warm-spicy herbaceous and camphoraceous odor, somewhat reminiscent of artemisia vulgaris oil. The flavor is equally cineolic-herbaceous, warm and burning. A peculiar sweetness, reminiscent of tansy flowers, is characteristic in the top note of the Dalmatian sage oil.
