  • Infuse herbs in C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate?

    Posted by Nat123 on September 2, 2018 at 8:25 pm

    Is it possible to infuse dried herbs (calendula, plantain, comfrey, etc.) in C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate? If so, what is the preferred method? 

    Thank you in advance for your input!

    Personally, I have never seen C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate being used as carrier for herbal infusions, usually it’s soybean or sunflower oil.
    Maybe it has something to do with the fatty acid profile, polarity or the price, I don’t know, maybe other forum members can help.

    Good luck!
