Our newest batch of Coffee Bean oil pressed July 2015 has a magnificent deep golden translucent appearance. We are extremely pleased with its richer, more vibrant aroma than our previous dark brown opaque batch pressed in 2013. Much to the delight of natural perfumers and skin care formulators blending without causing dramatic color change in formulations can now be achieved because of its golden translucency. *Note: We have received several new batches since July 2015 and each batch (although from the same lot) appears to differ slightly in appearance with some being more translucent than others.
Coffea arabica is not very pest resistant so many plantations spray tremendous amounts of pesticides. Whether coffee for drinking, or as an essential oil, always select organic grown that is pesticide free.
Coffee essential oil is an antioxidant and makes a superb addition in anti-aging skin care items, body scrubs and cellulite wraps. Blend with Cocao Absolute
and/or Vanilla Co2
for a decadent antioxidant rich anti-aging facial mask or sugar scrub.
