The Co2 extraction method is used for extracting a range of aromatic compounds as compared to any other distillation process.

Co2 is pressurized to form a liquid which then acts like a solvent and used for oil extraction from the plant. On completion of the extraction process, the extraction vessel is brought to normal temperature back. Co2 is converted to gas and all that is left behind it top quality cinnamon oil devoid of any solvents.
