You may run across Ginger Absolute and Ginger CO2 but, technically speaking neither Absolutes nor CO2 extracts are essential oils, although both processes extract most of the same aromatic constituents that make up essential oils. In addition, both methods may extract constituents that are not found in essential oils.
Standard precautions for essential oil usage apply. In addition, use sparingly and always dilute for application to the skin due to methyleugenol content: maximum dermal concentration of 0.02% is recommended by Tisserand & Young (2014) and lower levels (0.0004% for leave-on products) by IFRA.
