You may ask...

But - How are they made?


 Prior to the invention of distillation, aromatics (essential oils) were obtained by pressing or by soaking  plant matter in a liquid  such  as fat, alcohol, water or vinegar.  

Three distillation methods - simplified ...

  • Water distillation involves placing the plant material in water and boiling it.  The resulting oil rises with the steam to the condenser where it is separated and collected.
  • Water and steam distillation is similar, but a grid prevents the plant matter from coming into contact with the water.  As a result, overheating of the plant matter is reduced and the yield is increased.
  • Direct steam distillation is the method most distillers use today.  Live steam is injected into the plant matter within the still proper.
Some flowers and plants are extracted with volatile solvents.  Oils thus produced are called absolutes.  A good absolute will have zero parts per million of solvent residue.
CitrusCitrus oils can be obtained by cold pressing or by distillation. Cold pressed citrus oils naturally contain waxes and a small amount of fatty vegetable oil.
