  Cocoa CO2 Extract
Solvent-free, food-grade extraction of Theobroma cacao (cocoa butter cold-pressed from cocoa beans). Rich dark chocolate aroma.

Quantity:

A creamy, semisolid, butterscotch colored essence of dark chocolate. At cool room temperature this Chocolate CO2 extract is the texture of firm shea butter. You can cut it with a knife, but not scoop it with a spoon. Heat the bottle in warm water to 40 degrees C or 104 degrees F, and it liquifies, ready to blend into your favorite body oil, lotion, lip balm base. We have tried diluting it in warmed carrier oil, both Jojoba and Fractionated Coconut Oil. A 10% dilution in Jojoba thickens to a “slushy” texture at room temperature, while in Fractionated Coconut oil it remains liquid, but has a tendency to separate. A quick shake reblends the dilution.

Not for use in diffusers since the major components are fatty acids, primarily palmitic, stearic, and oleic.

In addition to the fatty acids described above, it contains the flavor and aroma compounds that give dark chocolate its taste and aroma, some esters and aldehydes, less than 5% caffeine, and traces of theophylline and theobromine.

How to use? We will leave this to your imagination. We may add the dilutions that we experimented with to a lip balm base. Michelle wants to make a body scrub, either Shea Butter or Virgin Coconut Oil or your favorite body oil, with a touch of Cocoa CO2 and some sugar or salt. A chocolate after bath lotion? A chocolate hand cream? Add a few drips to some Bliss Bath?

Therapeutic benefits? It’s CHOCOLATE... it doesn’t need any!

Blends With: what compliments chocolate? Coffee Essential Oil for a mocha? Sweet Orange? We were measuring in a new batch of Organic Peppermint oil today, while melting some of the Cocoa... chocolate peppermint? Our long awaited Cognac essential oil for a very sophisicated Truffle? Virgin Coconut Oil for a coconut candy scrub?

This extract carried a kosher seal and is prepared for the food industry, as an intense bitter chocolate flavour. We are not certified or licensed as resellers for food products, so are offering this delicious extract for fragrancing use only. (I am wondering what would happen if I add a drop to the basket of ground coffee in the morning, however!)
