Description of Absolute oils quoted directly from our distiller:
"Our organically crafted Absolutes are made using modernized technology similar to the ancient method of Enfleurage. The extraction process uses only certified organic solvents such as fixed oils and alcohol to coax the aromatic essence out of the plant material. The resulting bio-available essence, extracted very gently without added heat, captures the intricate aroma of the original plant material, allowing it to be used for true aromatherapy and skincare applications."
Enfleurage is a very old technique used to extract the essential oils from the most delicate flowers, which are unsuitable for the steam distillation method because too much of the scent would be lost. Our manufacturer uses only the strictest certified organic maternials in this process.
