Odor: characteristic
Use: Vitex oil has a unique, spicy, woody, slightly sweet aroma. Vitex oil is a product of the steam distillation of aerial parts, leaves, and berries that come from the Chaste tree, which grows in tropical and subtropical regions. In Greek mythology Hera, the wife of Zeus, was said to have been born under a Chaste tree, so subsequently this plant became a symbol for women and is often found in more feminine blends.
