History of Oakmoss
Oakmoss and its precious essential oil have been used for hundreds of years. It has seen a rich history in perfumery, dating back as early as the 16th century thanks to its natural fixative properties. Basketfuls of oakmoss have been found in ancient royal Egyptian tombs, though their use in that regard is not well known. Oakmoss oil is notorious for sensitizing the skin of some when applied directly, so be sure to dilute in a carrier oil well and test on a small spot of skin before use.
