Considered the most efficient and environmentally friendly method of selective extraction of active ingredients, CO2 is an ethical choice. As such it is vast becoming popular within the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries. Due to its richness, we recommend CO2 extracts are diluted in a light and fast absorbing carrier oil prior to application.

Essential Oils are highly concentrated and powerful oils, and have the ability to cause serious harm if ingested without the necessary expertise required – for this reason, ingestion of essential oils is NOT recommended for the general public.
It is highly recommended to dilute all pure essential oils prior to applying topically. Essential oils are highly potent, concentrated and powerful oils, and can cause severe skin irritations or even burn the skin when not diluted. Essential Oils are also volatile, therefore when diluted with a non-volatile material (carrier oil), it makes the evaporation process much slower and allows the essential oil to be ‘carried’ into the skin, providing a more effective therapeutic outcome.
