  • Product # 1571
  • Part Distilled foliage
  • Origin USA

 Coumarin is also abundantly developed on the dried leaves of the Liatris odoratissima, commonly called " Deer's tongue" or "Hound's tongue," an herbaceous plant found plentifully in North Carolina, in portions of Lower Georgia, and throughout the east and south of Florida, principally along the St. John's River and its tributaries. It is mostly found on the edges of what are called " bays," i. e. low-lying places in the pine woods, which are partially covered with water, and overgrown with " bays/' a species of magnolia f. ...By drying in the shade the leaves rapidly develop a pleasant odour very similar to that of the Tonka bean, and mainly due to the same principle—coumarin, crystals of which are abundantly deposited on the matured leaves when dried. In the early season the leaves are said to be very succulent, losing 60 or 70 per cent, of moisture in drying, but in September the loss hardly exceeds 20 per cent. It has been observed by Dr. Wood that they retain their fragrance for many years after they are gathered. The odour is given off more intensely on a damp day than on a dry one. A damp atmosphere will develop the perfume months after all sign of its activity has disappeared.-
