CO2 Extraction Method

A variety of extraction methods are used to create essential oils. These methods include distillation, cold-press, and CO2 extraction. Frankincense CO2 essential oil is extracted using the CO2 method.

A more modern extraction method, Carbon Dioxide extraction is achieved through pressurizing the carbon dioxide until it becomes a liquid. The temperature used is 95-100°F compared to the 140-212°F used in distillation. The process creates a thicker essential oil that smells much closer to the original plant source. Some essential oils extracted using the CO2 method may contain additional constituents than their distilled versions.
