Distillation Process of Our Essential Oils

In the mysterious process of distillation, when the heat extracts the essence of plants, we renew our link with nature. The pure oil allows the body and mind to rediscover harmony and well-being. Essential oil is extracted from plants through steam distillation, or expression, in the case of citrus fruits. In steam distillation, the plant material is heated by steam and the oils are extracted, drop by drop, as the liquid cools. In expression, the rind or zest of citrus fruit is scratched and pressed. The resulting liquid is left to separate so that the essential oil can be collected.
