I have 20 kilos of dried frangipani flowers coming to me soon to distill . Really happy to get to work with this oil . Fresh flowers produe 0.0017 essential oil and dried flowers half of that , so per kilo you only get maybe .7 more like .5 so out of 20 kilos i should get 10 grams of oil , just the raw materials cost over 125-150 usd a gram . Pure hydro distilled frangipani is almost unheard of in the world market , no one makes it . I look forward to distilling the white flowers next to the yellow ones and see what differences there are One step closer in creating an attar ive been working on that is... Fractioned royal green hojary from Oman, Tahiti vanilla, ancient white ambergris, and sinking grade Borneo agarwood and frangipani . The first step is a codistillation of hojary and vanilla beans , only the first few fractions are kept . This is the very best of the hojary oil and with the vanilla it softens and brightens the oil. The next step i add dusted sinking agarwood to the frank/vanilla oil as well as add ancient white ambergris and vanilla caviar. This is let sit for a few weeks before i distill it in a small all glass setup but only for a very short time just long enough to recover the oil that was originally put in it , this brings over the essence of agar resin in its most true and bright form and fuses the ingredients together , after this is done ill add a few drops of the frangipani to each attar bottle and let it sit and cure . There are a number of unique benefits to frangipani essential oil.Frangipani tree is known as the “Tree of Life” and highly regarded for centuries for its healing powers. Frangipani essential oil has a prominent place in aromatherapy due to the scent’s rejuvenating qualities for the mind and body when the essence is inhaled. In addition, it is believed that aromatherapy with frangipani oil effects deep internal cleansing that refreshes the body, mind and soul. The romantic scent of frangipani essential oil can last for many long hours due to its high concentration and originally strong aroma and is used in high class perfumery. Its scent encourages a sensual and almost provocative response due to its rich and exotic floral smell . Ill update the thread with video's and pictures as each step progresses .
