  Linden Blossom CO2 Select
Tilia cordata, extracted from certified organic blossoms, grown and produced in Bulgaria. WATER SOLUBLE


What a delightful surprise.  In the past we have offered a Linden blossom Total extract that was extremely thick,  not at all pourable, but rather, spreadable.  Even when diluted in Jojoba it thickened upon standing.  A challenge to pour and bottle! This delightfully aromatic select is liquid, pourable! Well worth the slight increase in price for the ease of use.

We recently discovered that this lovely, pourable Select extraction is not oil soluble, as all of our other CO2 extracts are, but water soluble.  It will be wonderful for perfumes, for room or body sprays, for bath prodcuts, but it will not dissolve in a carrier oil. Obviously there was at some point, mis-communication between our producer and us. 

Aromatically this is very different from the Linden Blossom absolute that we offered years ago. It has a floral note, but is much greener, as though leaves as well as blossoms had been extracted.

Wonderful, alone or in blends, for reducing tension. Robert Tisserand cites Linden Blossom in blends to detoxify and decongest the skin. Some authorities call this lovely essence "lime blossom," but it has no relation to the citrus family.  We recommend using in normal perfumery or aromatherapy dilutions.

  • 5 Fruit & Tobacco

    Posted by Justine from California on 04/07/2018

    Green apple sweet! Honey, pale tobacco, hay, oh, tilia cordata! It’s a ride through the countryside with all the windows down at that time between spring and summer when the green grass is thigh high and the flowers a little faded. It’s farm stands with berries and late spring greens for sale, and motes of pollen in sunlight.
    Sweet, sweet floral with deep green apple skin notes, propolis (the good stuff from Dan), rich, sweet tobacco, and sun warmed foin. Ah, there’s a lovely wine-like quality, a white with fruit notes, crisp and clean and sweet. The entire thing is a balanced combination of intrusive agrestic notes and elegant, refined, and delicate notes. Just fabulous!
    **UPDATE: This scent is big and loud, just a few drops on a scent strip has scented the entire office here (it’s a small office). It comes in waves, this scent, and I sometimes mistake the scent for blonde tobacco!

  • 5 Finally the Linden I've been looking for!

    Posted by Kira from Massachusetts on 04/07/2018

    I’ve purchased several Linden products from very reputable companies but haven’t found the smell I was looking for. This is a true Linden smell, honeyed, sweet, warm, fruity floral and simply divine. I will come back for more. Loving this CO2 version.

  • 5 Defies Description

    Posted by Kathy from New York on 05/20/2019 Verified Purchase

    I purchased this Linden Blossom based on the wonderful reviews and the description, in addition to the fact that it is water soluble. I think it has the most amazing scent of any oil I have ever purchased. I cannot wait to work with this lovely, fruity/floral oil in room sprays and my glycerin and hydrosol-based facial serums. It has such an incredibly uplifting scent. I will definitely be purchasing again.
