Oakmoss is a type of lichen used extensively in modern perfumery. This lichen can be found in many mountainous temperate forests throughout the Northern Hemisphere, including parts of France, Portugal, Spain, North America, and much of Central Europe. Oakmoss grows primarily on the trunk and branches of oak trees, but is also commonly found on the bark of other deciduous trees and conifers such as fir and pine.
The color of Oakmoss ranges from green to a greenish-white when dry, and dark olive-green to yellow-green when wet. The texture of the thalli are rough when dry and rubbery when wet.
Properties of Oakmoss ~ (Evernia prunastri) ~ emotionally attaches us to our home, creating a sense of security, grounding, and peace.
Blends in my shop with Oakmoss as a note are Isis, Immortal, Forbidden, and Avalon.
