This organically produced Chocolate Absolute is extracted from the bean of the Theobroma cacao tree, the source of chocolate and cocoa butter. We source fair trade organic cacao from Ecuador to start. The subsequent roasting and CO2 processing of the cacao beans takes place in France. It is extracted through high grade CO2 technology that does not involve any potentially harmful hexane residues. Although we cannot recommend its consumption, it is food grade.
The deep, luxurious and chocolatey scent of cacao is used in aromatherapy for stress and anxiety relief, as well as considered to be an aphrodisiac. Cacao Absolute Oil can be used to enhance many other botanicals. Because of its intense chocolatey aroma, our delectable Cacao Absolute is a popular choice for cosmetics, perfume, cologne, aromatherapy products and more.
A note on absolutes: Absolutes are highly concentrated aromatic materials. Their aroma is best observed in alcohol or carrier oil. Try diluting into one of our premium carrier oils or into alcohol at 5%, 10% or 20% and see how the scent will subtley change.
