Organic Frangipani Essential Oil – Enfleurage

Also know as Plumeria or Frangipani Essential Oil, Enfleurage, and Frangipani Organic Enfleurage

Frangipani Essential Oil is one of the most precious oils in the world and known for its heavenly aroma and fragrance.

Our Frangipani Essential Oil is one of our Artisan essential oils produced by the ancient technique of Enfleurage. It is quite rare, produced at our production facility in South America.

Extracting Frangipani by Enfleurage

Frangipani Essential Oil cannot be distilled like most essential oils due to the delicate nature of the flowers. Enfleurage was the traditional method of extraction used in the 18th and 19th centuries and into the early 20th century, but solvent extraction using hexane has virtually replaced Enfleurage, except, of course, for our own Frangipani. Solvent extracted Frangipani oil, called an “absolute,” is used extensively by the perfume industry.

The Frangipani Enfluerage we carry, however, contains no chemicals. Only organic cane sugar alcohol is used to extract this Frangipani Enfleurage. Both methods (Enfleurage or solvent extraction) are time consuming and oil yields are quite small for the amount of materials used.

During the extraction process of Enfleurage, fresh, fully opened Frangipani/Plumeria flowers are plucked and carefully laid on trays covered with a layer of pure, local, organic Palm oil. The essential oils from the flower petals slowly migrate to the Palm oil and the process is repeated until the Palm oil is completely saturated with the essence of Frangipani. Then the flower oil is separated from the Palm oil by cane sugar alcohol which then evaporated leaving only the pure Frangipani Enfleurage. The entire process of extracting the Frangipani/Plumeria for Enfleurage oil is done by hand using no heat and no harsh chemical solvents. The process for producing Frangipani Enfleurage is quite labor intensive and requires many pounds of Frangipani flower petals per mL of oil, but the results are astounding. Most noses would find the aroma to be quite similar to that of the actual Frangipani (Plumeria alba) flower.

Note: Do note that initially, in addition to the aroma of the Enfleurage oil, one smells the aroma of Palm oil (a bit “earthy) but, if given a few moments to “breathe”, the floral aroma of the oil supersedes / replaces that of the palm oil. Most noses love the aroma of our Enfleurage oils but, a few (less than 1%) of our customers smell more of the palm oil than that of the essential oil (this has to do with differences in receptors in the nose). If you happen to be part of the unfortunate 1%, just return the enfleurage oil for a full refund except for our shipping cost.

Natural Frangipani perfume is often enjoyed as a single-flower oil since the rich, warm, heady floral aroma produced from the flowers is considered osmically balanced (like Carnation and Lavender), which means that their floral compounds are perfectly balanced, containing a top, middle, and base note.

    Fresh, sweet aroma, floral waxy and warm. Almost reminds me of clean linen in a very natural smelling way. Really nice alone as single scent!
