Extracted from a flower native to the Mediterranean region, this very sticky mass has a powerful warm, woody fragrance with amber notes and is widely used in perfumery.
Since this substance is extremely sticky, the best solution for using it in fumigation is to freeze pieces that you have previously flattened in a plastic bag and take out at the time of fumigation. This way you can easily break off small pieces and they will not stick to the bag or your fingers.
