Plant Therapy Juniper Berry CO2 Extract 10ml
Refreshingly sweet and coniferous, this Juniper Berry CO2 is extracted using a unique solvent-free method called Supercritical Fluid Extraction (SFE). This process preserves the natural profile identity of the raw botanical material (in this case, juniper berries!) by using ambient temperatures and reducing the chance for thermal degradation of the extracted molecules.
The low temperature, paired with the lack of solvent evaporation, means SFE demands significantly lower energy than standard extraction technologies, helping to reduce the environmental impact and carbon footprint of this extract’s production. Plus, this method extracts the berries’ heaviest compounds, including fatty acids, that are not present in their steam-distilled counterpart. From an organoleptic point of view, this is the ideal process to experience the truest scent of the raw material.
The extract obtained from the berries of Juniperus communis is thick and honey-like, making it very difficult to work with and nearly impossible to pour from a bottle. To make this into a workable product for diffusion, topical applications, and DIYs, the natural fragrance fixative ingredient triethyl citrate has been added.
This gentle, biodegradable ingredient helps to thin out Juniper Berry CO2, making it mobile enough to use in a variety of ways. However, if you are having trouble getting this extract out of the bottle, gently warm the bottle in the palm of your hands to increase the extract's mobility.
