The greatest use of Coffee essential oil, is to help relieve the cravings when one is first letting go of coffee. 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 energy that can boost our nervous system into a feeling of refreshment and energy, just by smelling it!
Please note that like many herbal remedies, coffee essential oil’s beneficial properties diminish with daily use over time, and begin to take the body out of balance. Coffee is a helpful herb for short term use, not an adaptogenic for long term benefits.

Observations and Anecdotal Information
We have found a distiller in Venezuela who is producing Coffee essential oil, by dry roasting the beans and cold-pressing them to produce the oil. It has a much deeper coffee aroma than the Brazilian variety, which is distilled from the beans.
Coffee is great for adding into the water for a colon cleanse. Like coffee, it can encourage the rhythmic contraction of colon walls, called peristalsis–helping to tone the colon and expel toxic accumulation.
It is a stimulating oil, great for staying awake, and making us alert when we are dragging. If you get the 4 o’clock blues, try rubbing coffee essential oil on the solar plexus area (just below the heart), or rub on the soles of your feet. Coffee helps create mental clarity and increases concentration.
Coffee 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.
Coffee drink, though stimulating, is best when used intermittently or for a short term. Over long periods of use, its 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.
