    What is CO2 Extract?

    If you flunked Chemistry in school, you probably can't be bothered to research what CO2 extract is all about. No worries! We did the homework and will try to break it down for you.

    So what exactly does a CO2 extract mean? Is it the same as an essential oil? Well, CO2 is an extraction method, just like maceration, cold-press extraction, solvent extraction, and the classic steam distillation. In this case, CO2 (yes, it's that gas we breathe out!) is liquified and acts as a solvent to "extract" the aromatic molecules from the plant material. It then goes to a 2-stage process which leaves us with the CO2 extract.

    While it is not a true essential oil, it possesses a very distinct advantage. Because CO2 completely and rapidly evaporates, it leaves no residue whatsoever. It also does not require heat which means you get an oil that has an aroma closer to that of the living plant!
