Lily Enfleurage Oil, Organic

(Lilium auratum )
(3 customer reviews)


Our Organic Lily Enfleurage Oil is pure, undiluted Lily Oil (Lilum auratum) extracted by Enfleurage. Most Lily Oil is extracted by harsh chemical solvents and is therefore called an “absolute”. Our Lily oil is organic, with no harsh solvents used in the delicate enfleurage process.

Due to limited supply, Enfleurage oils are not available for returns, so we recommend ordering a sample if you are unsure.

    Our Organic Lily Enfleurage Oil is pure undiluted Lily Oil (Lilum auratum) extracted by Enfleurage. Most Lily Oil is extracted by harsh chemical solvents and is therefore called an “absolute” (Organic Lily Absolute). While some might call Organic Lily Oil an absolute, most refer to it as Organic Lily Enfleurage or Organic Lily Essential Oil. Our Lily oil is most rare, coming from a small grower/extractor in South America who extracts the essential oil from the flower by the ancient method of enfleurage, using only palm oil (organic) and alcohol (organic) derived from local sugar cane (organic). FYI – Some refer to this lily oil extracted by the enfleurage method as Organic Lily Essential Oil but, the proper term is Organic Lily Enfleurage Oil. This oil is just one of our line of Artisan Aromatics Enfleurage Oils.

    Organic Lily Enfleurage Oil Method of Extraction

    The entire process of extracting the Lily Essential Oil is done by hand using no heat and no harsh chemical solvents. Pure local palm oil is used to absorb the aromatic oils from the Lily flower petals and once the palm oil is completely saturated with the essence of the Lily flower then the palm oil is separated from the Lily oil by cane sugar alcohol which is then evaporated to leave only the Lily oil. The process for producing the Organic Lily Essential Oil is quite labor intensive and requires many pounds of Lily flower petals per milliliter of oil, but the results are astounding. Many would find it difficult to differentiate the aroma of the enfleurage oil from that of the actual Lily flower. More about Enfleurage Oils.

    Aroma of our Enfleurage Oils

    Most noses love the aroma of our enfleurage oils, but a few (less than 1%) of our customers smell more of the palm oil than the essential oil. Initially, in addition to the aroma of the enfleurage oil, one smells the aroma of palm oil a bit “earthy”. But, if given a few moments to “breathe”, the floral aroma of the oil supersedes or replaces the aroma of the palm oil. This has to do with differences in receptors in the nose. Since our enfleurage products cannot be returned for a refund, due to their rarity, we recommend that you first purchase a small sample vial to insure that you are not among the 1% of people who dislike the earthy note of the palm oil.

    Organic Lily Enfleurage Oil Uses

    The oil extracted from Lilies, Lily Enfleurage Oil, has healing and softening properties. Especially, when the Lily Organic Enfleurage Oil is mixed with that of calendula, it works wonderfully for sensitive skin. Lily oil with Calendula can be used for massage, in a bath, after a bath, for dry cuticles and elbows, as a facial moisturizer, under-eye oil and hot-oil treatment.


    Lilium auratum was first introduced to the Western world from Japan. Organic Lily Essential Oil is one of the most precious oils in the world and known for its heavenly aroma and fragrance. During the extraction process, fresh, fully opened flowers are plucked from the Lily plant and carefully laid on trays covered with a layer of palm oil. The essential oils from the flower petals slowly migrate to the palm oil and the process is repeated until the palm oil is completely saturated with the oil of the Lily. Then, the Lily oil is separated from the palm oil by alcohol which is evaporated leaving only the pure Lily Enfleurage Essential Oil (or Lily Absolute).

    Organic Lily cannot be distilled like most essential oils due to the delicate nature of the flowers. Enfleurage was the traditional method of extraction used into the early 20th century, Solvent extraction using hexane has virtually replaced enfleurage, except our own Organic Lily Essential Oil – Enfleurage. Solvent extracted Lily, called an “absolute”, is used extensively by the perfume industry. No chemicals other than alcohol made from organic sugar cane are used to extract the Organic Lily Enfleurage we sell. Either method (enfleurage or solvent extraction) is time consuming, and oil yields are quite small for the amount of materials used. Now, the most commonly found Lily used by the perfume industry is entirely synthetic and has no healing properties whatsoever. Natural Lily perfume is often enjoyed as a single-flower oil since the rich, warm, heady floral and yet subtle aroma produced from the flowers is quite wonderful in and of itself.

    The Lilium auratum is one of the true Lilies. It is native to Japan and is sometimes called the “golden rayed lily of Japan” or the “Goldband Lily. The flower color is typically white with gold radial markings and orange spots, but variations in flower colour and markings are known. The strongly scented flowers are the largest of any Lily species. The largest plants, which can reach 2.5 metres (8 ft), can carry up to twenty of these large flowers. It has been used widely in breeding, and many of the more spectacular modern cultivars are derived in part from this species.


    This Lily does well in plain or acidic soil. Rich or fertilized soil will kill the plant. Bulbs should be planted in a hole three times their size in both depth and width in a well drained area. The best position for this plant is one where its top will receive sunlight while its base remains shaded. This Lily can be cultivated by seed, but for faster reproduction, scaling is recommended. Its life span (around 3 or 4 years) is significantly less than that of its descendants, so reproducing this plant is important for gardeners.

    Due to the limited supply, Enfleurage oils are not available for returns. You may wish to purchase Enfleurage Oils in our Sample Vials.

      Thank you VERY much for your kind, considerate and thoughtful response to me Mark! I understand that my special request was minimal; and probably not a priority to you during these troubling times we are currently living in, and I was very impressed how terrific, obliging and accommodating you were to me!
      Much gratitude for your kindness to enlighten me about the Lily Enfleurage Oil! The oil is truly genuine, and smells heavenly! Love it! ❤️

      Sweet and spicy, sharp at first and opens to a deep complexed stingy mouth watering scent
      For perfume heavy smoke wood base notes compliments well
      For aromatherapy most of my patients adored the scent while it ignited positive emotions and good old memories
      The palm oil Scent is non existent
      Very recommended

    3. Helene Antel (verified owner) December 19, 2018

      This oil is my absolute favorite. It has a very pleasant, heady but not too sweet scent. The best part is that It smells just like oriental lily in a tiny bottle. Not a cheap perfume oil imitation. It comes in a small package and is expensive, but it makes the most luxurious lotion and oil based perfume. H.A. 12/18/18
