Native to the Chinese island of Hainan, Galangal Root Oil has since expanded into many different territories throughout East Asia and Indonesia. The oil’s aroma is fresh and camphoraceous, with a woody and spicy tenacity that blends well with ingredients such as laurel, cardamom, and ginger. However, unlike those oils, galangal retains a unique cineole-like top note, with a flavor that is warm, spicy, and slightly bitter. As such, Galangal Root Oil is often added to spicy-sweet products such as ginger ale, root beer, and other soft drinks.
Hugely popular among consumer spice blends and baked goods, Organic Nutmeg Oil is steam-distilled from the young fruits of the Myristica fragrans tree. The oil’s aroma is warm and spicy, with an innate sweetness paired with a strong peppery nuance. This combination of warmth and sweetness has made nutmeg a staple ingredient across a wide spectrum of products, from holiday cookies to tomato ketchups. In perfumery, nutmeg oil is a common inclusion within colognes, aftershaves, and other masculine fragrance blends.
