Native to India, black pepper was one of the most precious spices used during the middle ages in Europe. The essential oil is obtained by the steam distillation of dried berries/peppercorns of Piper nigrum. It has a colorless to pale/greenish yellow color and warm, peppery, slightly-sweet and spicy notes. The spiciness of black pepper is due to the chemical piperine. The aroma of black pepper is spicy, musky, warm, and of course peppery!

  • Name: Black Pepper Oil (Organic)
  • INCI namePiper nigrum Fruit Oil
  • Botanical name: Piper nigrum


Cardamom mature fruit holds several small black seeds, containing the aromatic ingredients of the Cardamom essential oil. This one imparts a tenacious odour, camphoraceous and cineolic in top note, somewhat medicinal, reminiscent of eucalyptus. The main odour is very aromatic, spicy, slightly sweet, balsamic and with a woody character. In fragrances, it is used to impart spicy character as well as a deep, warm note for floral bases such as muguet and rose.

  • Name: Cardamom Oil (Organic)
  • INCI nameElettaria cardamomum Seed Oil
  • Botanical name: Elettaria cardamomum


Native from Sri Lanka, cinnamon is one of the oldest spices known by humans and was already marketed more than 4,000 years ago. The essential oil comes either from the bark or the leaves of the tree, that also grow in many countries such as India, China and Indonesia. Cinnamon leaf oil has a musky and spicy scent and a light yellow colour that distinguishes it from the darker red-brown colour of cinnamon bark oil.

  • Name: Cinnamon Bark Oil (Organic) / Cinnamon Leaf Oil (Organic)
  • INCI nameCinnamomum zeylanicum Bark Oil / Cinnamomum zeylanicum Leaf Oil
  • Botanical name: Cinnamomum zeylanicum


Extremely precious some centuries ago, clove buds are originated from Indonesian islands. Very popular, the essential oil is distilled from the flower buds of the Eugenia caryophyllata tree. Its woody and slightly balsamic flavor profile makes the oil a must-have for many different spice blends, especially those that also incorporate additional dry and fruity flavorings. However, this oil also enjoys niche popularity within modern perfumery, as the natural richness of the oil pairs excellently with ingredients such as rose, honeysuckle, and other deep florals.

  • Name: Clove Bud Oil (Organic)
  • INCI nameEugenia caryophyllus Bud Oil
  • Botanical name: Syzygium aromaticum, syn. Eugenia caryophyllus


Traditionally used in India and China for thousand years, ginger gives an essential oil steam-distilled from the dried, unpeeled, freshly ground rhizomes of the Zingiber officinale plant. This oil instantly provides a warm, fresh and woody odor, with a spicy nuance that unravels into a somewhat citrusy drydown. Bold and tenacious, Ginger Oil is extremely rich in its flavor profile. Its sweet and spicy odor also makes it a popular addition to Oriental-style perfumes, blending well with citrus ingredients such as sweet orange, lime, and bergamot.

  • Name: Ginger Oil (Organic)
  • INCI nameZingiber officinale Root Oil
  • Botanical name: Zingiber officinale


Also known as “Chinese Cinnamon” or “Cassia Cinnamon,” Cassia Oil is steam distilled from the leaves, the twigs and/or the bark of the Cinnamomum cassia tree, a fragrant plant grown in China, Eastern and Southern Asia. This oil is warm and spicy, with slightly woody and balsamic characteristics blended into an intense sweetness. Cassia is also far more accessible than most other cinnamon-type oils, making it a cost-efficient alternative to “true cinnamon”.

  • Name: Cassia Oil (Organic)
  • INCI nameCinnamomum cassia Oil
  • Botanical name: Cinnamomum cassia
