Observations and Anecdotal Information
Our coffee essential oil comes from a producer in Venezuela who is producing it by dry roasting the beans, then cold-pressing them to produce the oil. It has a much deeper coffee aroma than the Brazilian variety, which is steam distilled from the beans.
Coffee essential oil’s greatest purpose that I have found is relieving the cravings when one is first letting go of a coffee addiction. It is great to put into an inhaler, and inhale whenever one requires a burst of energy–or a “taste” of delicious coffee.
Even though it is not exactly like drinking caffeine, the familiar aroma has an association with high energy that can boost our nervous system and brain into a feeling of refreshment and energy, just by smelling it!
Coffee is also great for supporting colon cleansing. Add a few drops of the oil into the water used for a cleanse. Like drinking coffee, it can encourage the rhythmic contraction of colon walls, called peristalsis, helping to tone the colon and expel toxic accumulation.
Coffee essential oil can be blended with other oils, used as an internal homeopathic remedy for coffee addiction, and used for stimulating purposes.
It can stimulate skin circulation, and makes a great spa treatment for cellulite skin condition. It also carries strong antioxidant properties which can relieve stress and reduce the effects of aging on skin.
Coffee drink, though stimulating, is best when used intermittently or for a short term. Over long periods of use, it’s caffeine content can weaken the heart, adrenal glands, kidneys, and liver. The essential oil of coffee carries a trace amount of caffeine, much less than regular coffee drink.
