Boronia Absolute (Boronia megastigma)

Boronia absolute (Boronia megastigma)

This bushy evergreen shrub can grow up to six feet high all over western and south western Australia.

It belongs to the Rutaceae plant family and there are fifteen different species. Only Boronia megastigma is used for its perfume.

Its dark flowers are brown on the outside and yellow in the middle; it was once described by a botanist as an ideal graveyard plant.

The absolute is a dark green liquid with a fresh, rich and fruity aroma.
