The mimosa absolute is obtained from Acacia decurrens, a native of Australia.
The absolute is extracted from the flowers and twig ends through solvent extraction.
Mimosa is a thick, yellow material with a sweet, floral and slightly woody aroma.
Aromatherapists use it to calm and relieve anxiety.
Its cosmetic applications stem from its astringent and antiseptic properties.
The flowers are harvested in March and April, when they are in full bloom.
This absolute is a hard and sticky substance.
