The leaves of Deertongue, as the composite plant is called in the U.S, do not yield any essential oil when they are distilled, but a highly aromatic extract, called Oleoresin of Deertongue, is prepared from the dried leaves with a volatile hydrocarbon solvent. Also known as Liatrax absolute.
Liatrax has a strong aromatic fragrance of vanilla (Tonka) and coumarin (Hay) with a salty malt component. One of our customers described it as a Tobacco-like Marshmallow aroma.

No known precautions. Persons allergic to vanilla should use with caution.
