Jasmine CO2 Select Extract
Our Jasmine CO2 extract is extracted from the Jasmine concrete, rather than the flowers themselves. The concrete is produced during the first stage of creating Jasmine Absolute, then the oil from the concrete is extracted using modern CO2 technology. The result is a very viscous oil with an aroma that is lighter, more delicate and more ethereal than the Jasmine absolute. Quite heavenly! However, since Jasmine CO2 is not completely liquid it is more challenging to work with.
Jasmine CO2 blends well in Jojoba oil but stays a bit cloudy until settling out on the bottom of the bottle. Filtering through coffee filters will then remove the sediment. In alcohol, Jasmine CO2 also becomes cloudy and then settles out to the bottom. After filtering the alcohol tincture will be clear.
Surprisingly, Jasmine CO2 is longer lasting on aroma strips than the Jasmine Absolute. It is a very lovely oil and recommended to all lovers of Jasmine.
- Deeply Sweet Review by Musa
- I ordered this two or three years ago. Because it is pretty much solid or waxy at room temperature, it takes a bit of effort to work with; I had to mix it with 3/4 coconut oil to make it easier to blend with other oils. But it is well worth the effort. Just like its dark orange color, the aroma of this oil is deeply sweet; it is almost like a "manly" jasmine. I am a guy and I would not be afraid to wear it anywhere. Jasmine blends very well with citrus. I made a 4 oz. blend with jasmine C02, Indian sandalwood, balsam of Peru, orange, bergamot, and possibly some others (I forgot) as part of a dowry for my wife and she loves it and still uses it today.

- My favorite Jasmine Review by Lauretta
- After sampling Eden Botanical's Jasmine Absolutes from both India and Egypt as well as Jasmine CO2, Jasmine CO2 is the clear winner for me. First, it seems more concentrated, so a small amount seems to go further. Second, to me, the aroma smells closest to actual jasmine flowers (which I grow, so I'm very accustomed to the smell). Finally, as noted above, the scent does seem to linger longer, and the price is really good. I highly recommend this product. (Posted on 2/19/13)
