Dear fellow ouddicts, the violet blooming season has begun here and soon the fields will turn purplish from fragrant viola flowers. I would like to make a tincture (I know enfleurage is the better way, but repeated tincturing might be much easier for me, and I don’t care about pigmentation much). What bothers me is not knowing which part of the flower is fragrant. They are too little to tell for sure using my nose. I tried dissecting their parts and smelling, but all the parts seem fragrant... I wish I knew for sure, is it whole flower? Petals? Stigma? The whole core? I have tried to find the answer on the web, but I failed. Some sources like fragrantica suggest it’s petals... Nonetheless it’s not very clear and convincing. Knowing which part to use would make the process more efficient. Less testing/trials. Better concentration of the molecules, and less water of plant origin in the ethanol tincture. I would be grateful for any suggestions.
