Juniper Berry CO2
Juniper berry oil (CO2) is obtained by supercritical extraction using natural pure carbon dioxide. The oil is 100 % pure and natural, obtained from Juniper communis. Softer and aromatically rounder this CO2 select is a wonderful alternative to the traditional Distilled Juniper Berry Oil.
This oil is brilliant cold-distilled variety wild grown from India. It is more viscous than most Juniper berry essential oils, with a slowly-releasing, full Juniper aroma. While some Juniper essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves and twigs, the best quality is derived from partially dried, ripened berries. This essential oil is made by cold pressing and distilling the ripe berries of Juniper plants. Carbon dioxide is used in the distillation process to naturally retain the delicate aromatic compounds that heat and oxygen can break down and alter.
Juniper is an evergreen shrub native to a wide array of climates in the northern hemisphere. It has small, waxy blue-green needle-like fragrant leaves and grows in a shrub form to a typical height of 12 meters. The berries typically take 3 years to come to maturity and produce significant aroma compounds.
Blends well with Cedarwood, cypress, geranium, grapefruit, lavender, lavandin, bergamot, lime, vetiver, clary sage and lemongrass.
