Essential Oil

6 products

Steam Distillation is a method separating essential oils found in aromatic plants. The process involves bubbling steam through the plant material. Because steam is easy to control, it is ideal for heat sensitive essential oils. The essential oils contained in plants are immiscible in water and have a higher boilling point, allowing the essential oil to vaporise at a lower temperature.

the following video demonstrates the use of a 5 litre Alembic pot still which is available from our store. We also have larger volume pot stills that can be used for steam distillation.
