What is Lilac Infusion Oil?
Lilac Infusion Oil is our first experiment using our Ultrasonic Extraction Technology. Essential Oil Wizardry wildharvested the lilac flowers from our garden in Ashland, Oregon to produce this light and nectarous substrate from God. We did two runs infusing fresh flowers into Fractionated Coconut Oil (MCT) and removing their aromatic heart notes with the Ultrasonic technology.
This required a delicate process of filtration to removing the flowers before they spoil due to oxidation & the water content from the Lilac. We chose to stabilize the mixture with a very small amount (<1%) of CO2 Rosemary Antioxidant as a natural preservative to prevent the micro amounts of water from spoiling the oil. The scent is very light and subtle ~ yet very beautiful and opening.
Thank you for experimenting with our first extraction producing Lilac Infusion Oil 🙂
Dr. Nick Notes
Native to Eastern Europe and the temperate regions of Asia, Syringa vulgaris (AKA Lilac) is a fragrant flowering shrub, part of the Oleaceae family. Lilac’s beautiful aroma has spread its cultivation to temperate climates all across the world. The lilac tree boasts deep green leaves, tannin-rich red bark with oval shaped clusters of floral blooms, demonstrating a variety of hues including purple, red, pink, yellow and white. As the flowers start to age and oxidize, the flowers indole compounds surge and express themselves as the dreamy intoxicating aroma they exude (think Jasmine, indole-rich) especially during an extraction.
Lilac flowers are very delicate and a steam distillation will destroy the aromatic profile of the flowers. True quintessence of Lilac (Lilac essential oil) may only be produced through the labor intensive enfleurage process which uses many rounds of fresh flowers infused into a carrier oil for many 24-48 flower cycles, to soak up the aromatics with huge concentration of flowers over several months. This rich aromatic infusion oil (just like our Ultrasonic Lilac Infusion Oil) is then washed with ethanol, extracting out the essential oil. By evaporating the ethanol away, a Lilac Essential Oil may be formed.
Our friend Charle-Pan at Cherry Valley Lilacs has cracked the code on this ancient process and is one of the only people on the planet whom has ever extracted Lilac Essential Oil. Lilac is commonly adulterated on the international fragrance market; true Lilac Essential Oil has only recently been extracted and offered (Charle-Pan’s first batch in 2015) – the price of true Lilac Essential Oil makes it truly price prohibitive. Charle-Pan estimates approximately 12 bushels of lilac flowers to produce 1 ounce of Lilac Essential Oil!
