A fragrant light to shine in the night of the soul." – Malte Hozzel. This pale yellow slightly viscous liquid has a fresh top note with a deep, warm, rich balsamic undertone. The 'CO2' distillation means the resin was never boiled at high temperatures to extract the oil - it simply was immersed in liquid carbon dioxide which then simply evaporates when the process is complete. This extracts the most pure oil, closest to the original plant state as possible - we consider the therapeutic effects of the CO2 distilled oils to be equal to, if not better than, the steam distilled varieties.
