About CO2 Extracts: CO2 extracts are generally used topically. CO2 extracts have larger molecules compared to their steam-distilled counterparts. Some may not be suitable for use in a nebulizing diffuser (unless blended with a thinner oil) – though most will be just fine in an ‘ultrasonic’ unit. CO2 extracts from herbs, spices, and natural plants can be used as bioactive ingredients, fragrances, and flavors in a highly concentrated form of nature to enhance cosmetics, perfumes, and food products.
Note: CO2 extracts generally include some larger molecules compared to their steam-distilled counterparts. Some may not be suitable for use in a nebulizing diffuser (unless blended with a thinner oil) – though most will be just fine in an ‘ultrasonic’ unit. The 'CO2' supercritical distillation means the resin was never boiled at high temperatures to extract the oil. Instead, it was immersed in liquid carbon dioxide which then simply evaporates when the process is complete. This process results in a more chemically complex oil.
