Coumarin Crystalline Powder – Natural – France
Coumarin is a crystalline material which also looks like white sugar. Coumarin appears as colorless crystals, flakes or colorless to white powder with a pleasant fragrant vanilla odor and a bitter aromatic burning taste.
Coumarin, occurs naturally in many plants, natural spices, and foods such as tonka bean, cassia (bastard cinnamon or Chinese cinnamon), cinnamon, melilot (sweet clover), green tea, peppermint, celery, bilberry, lavender, honey (derived both from sweet clover and lavender), and carrots, as well as in beer, tobacco, wine, and other foodstuffs.
The coumarin we procure is extracted from Tonka Beans and is a great fixative.
Its easy to dissolve the crystal upon stirring or easier if you are using a magnetic stirrer, upon adding the desired amount of crystals to the solvent, the crystals dissolve fairly easily.
Coumarin is used as an additive in perfumes and fragranced consumer products at concentrations ranging from <0.5% to 6.4% in fine fragrances to <0.01% in detergents.
