Organic Essential Oil Production

HOW our ESSENTIAL OILS are made?

There are several techniques used in making organic essential oils. These include hydro
distillation, steam distillation, solvent extraction, CO2 extraction, cold press and florasol
extraction. Shirley Price Aromatherapy suppliers use steam distillation and cold press extraction.
The precious oils of jasmine, neroli and rose absolute are available as absolutes, the product of solvent or CO2 extraction.

Steam Distillation

Organic Essential Oil distilleries have classically used hydro diffusion (steam distillation) to
produce organic Essential Oils. During distillation, steam runs through the plant material.
The hot steam breaks down the cells of the plant and carries the essential oils to a cooling
chamber where the hydrosol (water portion of the plant) and the essential oil (volatile oils of
the plant) are then separated. The separation of essential oil (top) and hydrosol
(bottom) means the oil can be easily ladled out.

The end result is dependent upon several factors which include: growing methods (ours are
100 % organically grown), geography, and climate, soil conditions, and most importantly,
the technique and expertise of the distiller. The amount of essential oil that each distillation
yields is dependent upon the plant. Price is usually a reliable indicator of how much oil each
crop yields.

Cold Press Extraction

Most high quality citrus essential oils are obtained from a cold pressing of the rind or peel.
This process is often called scarification. As in steam distillation, to insure high quality
essential oils it is necessary to use only the finest plants available. The common use of
chemical pesticides in industrial citrus farming makes using organic citrus essential oils
especially important. Many citrus essential oils on the market are bulk essential oils of
inferior quality made by steam distillation of the peels rather than scarification.
Our essential oils are produced by scarification of organic citrus crops
