Our coffee absolute has a heady and intoxicating aroma, with smoky, earthy notes and an underlying sweetness. This absolute is extracted from roasted coffee beans and has the powerful aroma of freshly brewed coffee.
Extracted and blended in France from Coffea canephora beans grown in Vietnam and West Africa, our coffee oil is a base note that can be used in a wide array of body care recipes or in personal aromatherapy blends. Add to perfumes, body butters, lotions, or massage oils. Coffee absolute is not recommended for use in diffusers.
This absolute has been blended with tri-ethyl-citrate at 50% to help with pourability, however it still has a thicker consistency than most essential oils and may take more time to mix into perfume blends or other body care recipes. It is helpful to start with a small quantity of the other ingredients you are using (such as carrier oil or butter) and thoroughly blend the coffee absolute until it is completely combined. From there it is easier to incorporate the blended mix into the rest of your ingredients.
The dark brown color of this absolute may stain clothing or affect the color of finished products.
