Our Leaf is an isolate derived from Aloe africana, also known as African Aloe or Cape Aloe, which is native to the southern parts of Africa. It is found in countries such as South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Lesotho, and Swaziland.
In its native range, Aloe africana is well-adapted to the arid and semi-arid regions, where it thrives in rocky and sandy soils. It is a succulent plant known for its rosettes of fleshy, lance-shaped leaves and tall flower spikes with tubular, orange to red flowers.
Leaf has a distinctive green, grassy, and slightly vegetal aroma. It captures the essence of freshly cut grass and evokes a sense of freshness and naturalness. The scent is often described as crisp, clean, and uplifting.
In perfumery, Leaf is used to add a green and leafy note to fragrances. It provides a natural and outdoor ambiance and is often utilized in fragrances that aim to create a sense of vitality, youthfulness, and freshness. It is particularly popular in perfumes with green or herbal themes. It is a Top note in our Green family.
The versatility of Leaf allows it to be used in a wide range of fragrance compositions. It can be found in various types of perfumes, including fresh and citrusy scents, floral fragrances, and even some woody or aromatic blends. It is often used as a top or middle note to provide an initial burst of green freshness or as a supporting note to enhance other green or leafy accords in the fragrance.
Overall, Leaf is valued in perfumery for its ability to bring a natural and vibrant green scent to fragrances, capturing the essence of fresh leaves and providing an invigorating and uplifting olfactory experience.
Smudging is a ceremonial practice found in many Native American cultures, as well as in some other indigenous communities. It involves burning bundles of dried leaves, often sage or other sacred herbs, and using the smoke to purify and cleanse a space or an individual.
In certain cultures, leaves may be used for divination and fortune-telling. Leaves are interpreted based on their shape, patterns, or positions to provide insight into the future or answer specific questions.
