Enfleurage is an ancient technique used for extracting essential oils from the most delicate flowers. All of our organic Enfleurage essential oils are produced for us by a wonderful certified organic grower in South America using a modern variation of the ancient technique of Enfleurage. Organic Enfleurage oils are quite rare since the process is very labor intensive and requires the collection of hundreds of pounds of delicate flower petals to produce just a few ounces of essential oil.
These organic Enfleurage essential oils are quite different from Absolutes. To produce absolutes, the delicate oils from the flowers are extracted using harsh chemicals. Even worse are fragrance oils which are completely synthetic, containing no natural components at all. Enfleurage oils, however, are some of the most pure and fragrant aromas in the world.
Here at Artisan Aromatics, we work closely with a small-scale producer in South America that uses a modern version of the ancient technique of enfleurage to produce completely organic oils of Frangipani, Jasmine, Gardenia, Lily, Rose, Tuberose and more. He grows his flowers on his small farm and then processes them using Palm oil as the fat and pure alcohol derived from local sugar cane. By using all local products, he helps to support the local economy and small farmers and gives employment to indigenous residents.
2017 Update: Our production facility in South America has recently begun making Limited Edition batches of some Enfleurage Oils based on pure Organic Coconut Oil, rather than Palm Oil. The result is very special – pure flower aroma without even a hint of the earthy undertone of Palm Oil.
