Utilisation:
Hibiscus abelmoschus is mainly used in Southeast Asia. Folk medicine uses the seeds there for snake bites, cramps, cramp-like stomach and intestinal diseases and for loss of appetite. In Chinese folk medicine the drug is used to treat headaches [2].*

The musk seed CO2 extract is used to flavour e.g. desserts, chocolate, pralines, confectionery, non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages such as liqueurs and bitters [2].*

 

The common name of Hibiscus abelmoschus in India is Musk Dana or musk seed, as the smell has a certain similarity with animal musk. The characteristic musky scent of the seed oil is mainly caused by the ketone ambrettolide. The Musk Seed CO2 extract has a musky and amber-like, sweet, floral, woody scent profile with slightly animal leg notes. The product can be used in chypre, unisex and oriental perfumes, for example. As a fragrance, the extract is also suitable in other cosmetic products. Moreover, the extract has antibacterial effects e.g. against Bacillus subtilis and Streptococcus aureus [3].*
