Do not use undiluted on the skin: it is a raw material, not a finished product.


Rhubofix (Fir) has a scent reminiscent of rhubarb. The fragrance is not particularly strong, undiluted use is common. It goes well with fresh, green scents, citrus (especially grapefruit), wood, fruit (like cherry) and spice, especially the sweeter ones. Certain floral scents also go well with it, especially if they have sweet spicy or green spicy aspects. Think of clover, lavender, linden (lime) blossom, rose and ylang ylang. You usually use between 0,1% and 10% of this substance in the fragrance composition. It can easily dominate, you just get a (too) high dose, despite the not extremely strong smell. In perfumes it is mainly a heart to base note, it is stable in most products, including soaps. When used in scented candles: both the cold throw and the hot throw are excellent.

Store in a cool, dry, dark place and out of the reach of children.
