Ginger CO2 Essential Oil is extracted from fresh Ginger root. CO2 extraction is accomplished by the conversion of carbon dioxide from its gaseous state to its liquid state and yields a pure oil with no residual extraction chemicals. CO2 extraction yields an oil that is the closest, in fragrance, to the natural material. Also producing a very powerful oil, CO2 extracts can be used at lower levels than conventional distilled essential oils. The difference in fragrance is phenomenal. Ginger CO2 Essential Oil has a fragrance that is even more smooth, and much sweeter, than that of the fresh root distillation with a slightly green, very soft, spicy, note and none of the sharpness, perfect for adding a hint of spice in sensual blends. This is the Ginger to use in any spicy perfuming work, where it will give your blends a sweet, spicy, note that is unmatched by any other oil. This is not the oil of choice when you are looking for the fragrance of fresh cut ginger. For those applications you would want the steam distilled Ginger Fresh Essential Oil.
Therapeutic Use: Ginger CO2 Essential Oil is well known for its detoxing effect on the body systems while also being effective for diffusing pain and warming the tissues as it speeds micro circulation. Also known as a remedy for coughs, colds, and any other systemic issues. A great choice for any cold / flu, detoxification, and pain blends. Of course, the quintessential treatment for gastric issues. The scent alone can help to ease an upset stomach.
Fragrance Impact: With its warm, spicy, note Ginger CO2 Essential Oil is a great addition to any blend designed for aphrodisiac appeal where it will smooth out the sweetness to give the blend that deeper, psychologically soothing, impact.
