About this item
Musk essential oil has a sharp, earthy, and woody fragrance. It was originally extracted from the glands of the Himalayan musk deer but, since 1979, the glandular secretion of musk deer has been banned to prevent the ecological imbalance. The musk essential oil used today is a plant-based product. The essential oils that imitate the odor of musk originate from the plants like Olearia argophylla, Angelica archangelica, Mimulus moschatus, and Abelmoschus moschatus.
