Elemi CO2 Extract
Offering a fresh, green top note with undertones reminiscent of Pink Pepper, Elemi CO2 Extract makes a wonderfully complex addition to your collection. Sourced from the Philippines through CO2 extraction of the plant’s gum resin, this oil has a cleaner, longer-lasting aromatic profile than its essential oil cousin.
Due to its calming and relaxing scent, Elemi CO2 Extract is a great oil to use aromatically when you’re feeling stressed. You can diffuse using 2-3 drops per 100 mL of water in your NovaFuse or use in a personal inhaler. Build your new favorite blend by adding a few drops of this fresh and peppery oil to Lemon or Orange Essential Oils. Citrus not your favorite? More blending suggestions are listed below!
Elemi CO2 Extract is also a relative of Frankincense, making it an excellent addition to age-defying and rejuvenating skincare products. Use this extract to add a fresh note to woody, spicy, or zesty perfumes or for masculine fragrances and products. Try using this fresh and peppery oil in DIY cologne, after-shave, or roll-ons. To use topically, dilute to 1-2% in your favorite carrier oil.
