Violet Oil Fun Facts

The scent of Violet Oil is often described as sweet, floral, and slightly powdery, reminiscent of the violet flower itself.

The Matthiola incana plant species boasts an array of flower colors, spanning from pristine white to shades of lavender, purple, delicate blue, vibrant red, soft pink, and muted pale yellow.

The violet flowers are commonly candied and used as delicate decorations on desserts.

What is Violet Oil?

Violet oil, an aromatic extract, originates from the vibrant pink and purple flowers of the Matthiola incana plant. These blossoms, appreciated for their beauty, are often used as decorative cut flowers in Japan.

In the past, this oil was used in Iranian medicine as a remedy for insomnia due to its calming effects. The Matthiola incana flower itself is also admired for its ornamental value, gracing gardens and arrangements with its elegant appearance.

This luxurious oil has stood the test of time and is still known for its antioxidant-rich composition that may shield the skin from environmental stress. It is also a popular ingredient in massage oils and moisturizers, due to its soothing aroma.
