Description

Carbon dioxide extractions utilise only pure carbon dioxide as a solvent. CO2 extraction produces extremely pure plant extracts. These oils are safe to be used directly on the skin.

The name Calendula originates from the fact that it blooms on the calens, or the first of most months. Used since ancient times to comfort the heart and spirits. Calendula has anti-inflammatory properties and is useful in treating skin conditions. It’s antioxidant properties are useful for aged, damaged, dry and mature skin.

Extraction Method: Supercritical carbon dioxide. This method uses carbon dioxide that is in a fluid state but has a temperature and pressure that give it unique properties somewhere between a gas and a liquid. This enables it to act as a solvent that is idea for chemical extraction due to its low toxicity. It is also able to preserve some of the more volatile components of essential oils that may be lost when other extraction methods are used. It is also very easy to separate the solvent (CO2) from the oil at the end of the process ensuring maximum purity.

** It is important to note that all CO2 oils are extremely concentrated by nature. They should not be evaluated in this state unless you are accustomed to the undiluted fragrance. For those trying CO2 oils for the first time, we strongly recommend they be evaluated in dilution. Otherwise, the complexity of the fragrance ? particularly the rare and exotic notes ? become lost

CO2 oils can be very viscous or even solid and can be difficult to extract from the bottle. Gently warming the absolute in a water bath will melt the product and make it easier to use. Removal of the standard dripolator may be required in some cases.
