Lovage Herb Essential Oil CAS 8016-31-7
Lovage Herb Oil is steam distilled from the freshly harvested overground parts of the lovage plant at full maturity. The oil is not produced on a commercial scale, but smaller lots are available from Yugoslavia, Hungary and Belgium. The oil is a colorless or very pale yellow to greenish-yellow, mobile liquid of extremely diffusive odor. The initial notes of its odor resemble those of lovage root oil, celery seed oil and mentha citrata oil. The undertone and dryout notes are extremely sweet-aromatic, sweet-floral, reminiscent of cardamom oil and bergamot oil. The celerylovage note is quite persistent throughout the stages of evaporation, and the tenacity is good.
