Coffee Oil / Coffee Absolute / Coffee CO2

The oil that is contained within the coffee bean is responsible for its distinctive flavor. Coffee Oil can be green or roasted, but Roasted Coffee Oil is truer to the aromatic "coffee experience."

Prior to roasting, the beans and the oil derived from them smells quite green and somewhat bitter. In fact, unroasted coffee beans are referred to as green coffee beans.

I'm not familiar with the availability of a steam distilled coffee essential oil, but Coffee Oils are available as CO2s, absolutes and as a cold pressed oils.

Caffeine is a water-soluble constituent and is not present within the volatile oil.

Limited documentation is available regarding the constituents contained within the oil, and its use within holistic aromatherapy is uncertain. It naturally may be assumed that it would be a nice morning pick-me-up oil in the diffuser despite its absence of caffeine. It may be an oil worth exploring for those attempting to give up caffeine or coffee. Though I'm concerned it actually could be a temptation to those trying to quit drinking coffee, it could potentially help curb the craving for some.

Coffee Oil is gaining more widespread use in personal care product formulation.

Important Note: The essential oil information provided within the Essential Oil Properties & Profiles area is intended for educational purposes only. This data is not considered complete and is not guaranteed to be accurate. Profiles for several absolutes are included within the directory, and are denoted as such.

General Safety Information: Do not take any oils internally and do not apply undiluted essential oils, absolutes, CO2s or other concentrated essences onto the skin without advanced essential oil knowledge or consultation from a qualified aromatherapy practitioner. If you are pregnant, epileptic, have liver damage, have cancer, or have any other medical problem, use oils only under the proper guidance of a qualified aromatherapy practitioner. Use extreme caution when using oils with children and give children only the gentlest oils at extremely low doses. It is safest to consult a qualified aromatherapy practitioner before using oils with children. A skin patch test should be conducted prior to using an oil that you've never used before. Instructions on conducting a skin patch test and more safety information can be found by visiting the Safety Information page. For in-depth information on oil safety issues, read Essential Oil Safety by Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young.
