CO2 essential oil extraction process Supercritical CO2 extraction method of essential oils, referred to as SFE. In short, CO2 extraction is extracted by pressurized CO2 until it becomes a critical point in liquid state. The liquid carbon dioxide then acts as a solvent to obtain natural plant matter… Read More »Supercritical CO2 extraction of essential oils
