Aromatherapy There appears to be no aromtherapy use for the concrete or floral wax. Makes a nice hardening agent in lip balms.

Perfumery: In commercial use, the concrete and floral wax has primarily been used in soap perfumes, rounding off rough chemical notes. In emerging indie natural perfumery, floral concretes are being incorporated into alcohol-based perfumes, as well as solids. The floral wax is also a nice adddition to scented candles.
