Steam Distillation Process

Steam distillation gives better yield of oil and higher citral content. So, we follow steam distillation process.

• The total process of distillation takes around 3-5 hours for extraction of one batch.

• Aromatic herbs are loaded into the stills and then lid of the still is closed to avoid escape of vapours. Steam generated in the boiler and is injected into the still at required pressure. The Vapourised essential oils are condensed in a condenser. The Condensed liquid i.e., water and oil are received and separated in a receiver or separator.

• The colour of the oil varies because of distillation tanks. It varies from pale yellow to dark yellow because of aluminium and steel tanks.
