Mountain Savory Essential Oil CAS 90106-57-3
The plant is a small labiate, and the essential oil is obtained by steam distillation of the entire overground plant with its flowering stalks.
Savory Oil is a pale yellow or almost colorless liquid of fresh medicinal-spicy odor, reminiscent of sage and thyme, but with a sharpness recalling that of cumin oil, although not distinctly green. The dryout is rather phenolic-harsh. Of flavor, the Savory Oil is disappointingly sharp, biting or burning, almost bitter. At low concentrations only, the flavor can be recognized as pleasant, herbaceous, reminiscent of the culinary herb. The oil is used mainly in flavors for sauces, seasonings, canned meat, pickles, vinegars, etc.,
