Linden Blossom CO2 Oil

Tilia cordata

Our certified organic linden blossom CO2 oil is extracted from the delicate yellow blossoms of a deciduous tree, often called littleleaf linden or small-leaved lime, growing in Bulgaria. This linden blossom CO2 is not a total (as our past batches) but is a select extract. It is a liquid that is water and ethanol soluble and not a wax, making it super easy to use! Perfumists all over the word covet it for its beautiful, complex aroma.

What is a CO2 extract? CO2 extraction is a very efficient way of extracting essential oil. Instead of using steam, as in steam distillation, Carbon dioxide is used as a solvent to extract the essential oil. A small amount of organic ethanol is used during the process as a "co-solvent" to help enhance the solvent power of the supercritical carbon dioxide. Being a polar solvent /compared to the neutral CO2 the ethanol dissolves more polar molecules of the fragrance and once the extract is "released" from the CO2 in result we obtain a liquid "selected" extract. As the extraction is finished and the pressure is released, the Carbon Dioxide escapes in its gaseous form leaving a pure extract. One advantage of the CO2 extract is that low heat is used in the process.  Total Extracts have waxy materials containing the volatiles/essential oils and plant waxes.  They are soluble in lipids - carrier oils like jojoba, Marula etc.  Select Extracts do not have the waxy material and this select is liquid that is soluble in water and ethanol.
