History and origin

In North America, Labrador tea is transcontinental. It tends towards boreal and arctic regions. This indigenous species is mainly found in bogs and sites populated with black spruce. It is a medium-sized evergreen shrub with alternate and oblong leaves. Native Americans drink infused Labrador tea to treat certain respiratory, digestive and renal problems, rheumatisms, scurvy and headaches. They also use it as a blood purifier and as a parturition aid. Besides, the infusion was used as a wash for wounds, insect bites and skin rash and to prepare a dark brown tincture used to color wool and wood.

Aromatherapy Data Sheet

Ingredients : Pure essential oil pre-calibrated with organic sunflower seed oil.

Uses

Gastronomic Oils naturally blend into fats, salt, sugar, and sauces. The average dosage is of one or two drops of product per 250 grams of recipe. It is always preferable to add Saba’s aromas at the end of cooking, since they will often evaporate if  cooked for too long. Use it as you would use fresh herbs. If your preparation requires integrating all ingredients before baking,  such as in pies or pastry, we recommend you double the number of drops for each hour of cooking or standing.

With gastronomic oils and essential waters, you can correct most mistakes. If you accidentally drop too much oil in your preparation, simply heat up slowly your recipe for about 10 minutes, or until you reach back the desired aromatic intensity.

In a rubbing oil with raw meats and cuts to sear, we recommend that you use from 8 to 10 drops for every 250 g of preparation and let stand for approximately 15 minutes before cooking (serve quickly).

Let your imagination run wild!
