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.

  1. I try not to wash it off. I’m 40 and everyone tells me I look 25. I put in on and wipe it off with a towel but don’t wash it off;) It may be a bit greasy for about 15 mins but soaks in and looks great.

  2. So I love Elemi AndThis version kicks it up a notch. it is an essential oil of the month and I don’t know if they will be adding this to their line so I’m finishing up all of my regular Elemi before I use this. I I know I’m gonna be bummed if I can’t get it anymore, that’s how much I love it

  3. I made this and use it every night. I love how it works. I usually have oily skin and this really helps! I also like to use witch hazel as a toner and add a few drops of Elemi in the morning.

    1. Dry skin! And then once you rinse it off, you’ll follow it up with a water-based cleanser to remove any excess oil.
