Introducing CO2 Oils

Introducing CO2 Oils

Find more goodness today in the shop with our newest additions – CO2 oils! One of the most exciting and more recent developments in aromatherapy, CO2 oils have already become superstars in the essential oil community. 

Like absolutes, CO2s use a solvent to extract oil from plant material. The solvent in CO2 extraction is CO2 itself which is pressurized into the same density as a liquid and then mixed with the plant material. The CO2 draws out the oil and is then separated from the oil before returning to its gaseous state. 

So what makes CO2s so special? Unlike in steam distillation, whereheavier plant components might be naturally removed, CO2 extraction picks up these heavier components. This makes CO2s and essential oils similar yet unique both therapeutically and aromatically. Therapeutically, CO2s share benefits like their essential oil and absolute counterparts. In general, CO2s also have aromas that are more similar to the plants from which they’re extracted. 

The difference between CO2s and essential oils is a lot like the difference between essential oils and absolutes. They’re similar yet different, offering unique benefits and aromas thanks to the ways in which they’re produced. Not convinced? Experience the CO2 difference for yourself with our five new 100% pure CO2 oils.

New CO2s

Coconut CO2 (Cocos nucifera): With an undeniably warm, creamy and tropical aroma, we’re nuts for Coconut. Its skincare benefits and moisturizing abilities only adds to our love for Coconut CO2. Add to a lotion or cream base and apply topically or diffuse with citrus oils for a tropical, summertime diffuser blend.

Frankincense CO2 (Boswellia carterii): Warm and resinous with woodsy, peppery nuances, the aroma of this CO2 alone is sure to stop you in your tracks. Revered for its ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, nourish skin, provide respiratory support and smooth away worries, there’s a lot to love about Frankincense CO2.

German Chamomile CO2 (Matricaria chamomilla): Herbal and floral with notes of fruity apple, German Chamomile CO2 is both impressive and altogether wonderful. This CO2 comes stacked with benefits, from aiding pain and inflammation to alleviating stress and boosting the appearance of skin. 

Ginger CO2(Zingiber officinale): Love the aroma of fresh Ginger? Then you’re in for a treat with Ginger CO2. This CO2 pulls out all the stops with its spicy, warm and invigorating aroma. Not to mention its ability to support healthy digestion, aid circulation as well as soothe aches and pains. 

Vanilla CO2 (Vanilla planifolia): What’s not to love about the sweet, creamy aroma of Vanilla? But beyond just being sweet and creamy, Vanilla CO2 is elegant, refined and quite decadent. A little goes a long way with this oil, adding a bit ofoomph to just about any blend or natural perfume.

Hi Bee! Yes, CO2s are similar to essential oils in that they can be diffused and applied topically. Vanilla CO2 does mix with other oils whereas Vanilla Oleoresin does not (it’s water-soluble up to 5%).

Are the CO2 Extracts similar to Essential Oils in the way they are used (diffused, topically) or are they more suited than EOs in certain situations? Does the Vanilla CO2 mix better with other oils than the Oleoresin?…

Hi Ms BeachLizard! It’s wonderful to hear how therapeutic Frankincense has been for you! Frankincense CO2 isn’t necessarily more concentrated but it does more closely resemble Frankincense resin.

For anyone reading, please note that we don’t recommend ingestion unless one has consulted with their doctor and an aromatherapist.

I have been taking your Frankincense Carterii internally for YEARS! I make my own capsules—MCT Oil and several drops of Frankincense. (I worked my way up to a dosage that is good for me.) It has helped me immensely with asthma as well as my osteoarthritis and other inflammatory processes. It has also nearly wiped out my rare form of (autoimmune) psoriasis. I. Love. This. Stuff. My question regarding the CO2 version: is it more condensed than the steam distilled Frankincense? Thank you for this wonderful product. I tried others before I finally tried yours. I have not looked back. I even have my Mom hooked on Eden’s Garden Frankincense. Like me, if she gets an EO, it comes from you.

Hi Aaron! CO2 extraction is generally less expensive than other methods of obtaining oil, but our pricing depends on a variety of other factors as well such as availability.

Hi Rachael! Vanilla CO2 can be diffused in small amounts, because a little goes a long way. This oil can also be thick so it may help to blend it with a thinner oil before diffusion.

Ooh this is quite exciting! I notice that some of these oils are more expensive than their non CO2 counterparts, like vanilla, but others like German Chamomile are less expensive than the non CO2 version? I’m curious as to how CO2 EO extraction differs in cost as compared to absolutes, steam distillations, and cold pressing?

Can the vanilla co2 be diffused? I know the oleoresin isn’t recommended for diffusion.
