Hand Picked Harvest
Plant parts are removed either by hand or with the use of tools such as clippers or knives. Manual harvesting is favorable because it causes minimal bruising or damage that could affect the plant’s fragile cells containing essential oils. It also allows for careful removal of only the plant material needed for distillation without damaging the rest of the plant. A careful harvest technique not only allows the maximum amount of essential oils to be distilled, but also ensures the non-harvested plant remains healthy and can regrow as quickly as possible for future use.
Steam distillation is the most common way to extract aromatic compounds (essential oil) from a plant. During the steam distillation process, steam passes through the plant material. The combination of heated steam and gentle pressure causes the essential oil to be released from microscopic protective sacs. As the vapor mixture flows through a condenser and cools, it yields a layer of oil and a layer of water. The essential oil rises to the top and is separated from the hydrosol (floral water) and collected.
