Product information essential oils
Extraction of the essential oil
Steam distillation is the most commonly used way of extracting essential oils. Here, the plants are heated by steam, whereby their fragrances are transported to a second, cooled kettle (Florentine pot). In this Florentine pot, the resulting essential oils are now collected drop by drop.
Cold pressing is usually used with citrus fruits, e.g. Orange, lemon, bergamot is applied. The fruit peels containing the essential oil are carved, pressed and centrifuged using special machines. By centrifuging an oil-water mixture, the essential oils are finally recovered. Cold pressing is not a chemical process.
Enfleurage is the oldest, most complex and costly distillation method for the extraction of essential oils, which is hardly used today. For delicate floral fragrances such as jasmine, rose, tuberose or violet, this production is excellent. When extracting pig lard, coconut oil, shea butter or palm oil is used as the extractant, which is painted on glass panes about 1 to 2 cm thick. Then the flowers are laid, which are replaced in about every other day by new flowers. Within 1-2 months, the fat has absorbed the scent of the flowers. When the time comes, this is dissolved with alcohol. Subsequently, the separation of the alcohol from the flower essences.
C02 - Carbon dioxide extraction
Carbon dioxide extraction is a timely and costly process. A short distillation time, low temperatures and high pressure make it possible to gently extract the essences of heat-sensitive plant and flower material without destroying it. Therefore, this method will take a significant place in the future recovery of essential oils.
Essential oils are natural plant extracts that are mainly obtained by steam distillation. Only the so-called "citrus oils" (lemon, orange, bergamot, lime, grapefruit, etc.) are produced by cold pressing of the shells.
The occurrence of the plants that make up essential oils mainly occurs in the southern climatic zones (Southern Europe, North Africa, India, America), but also countries such as Japan and China are among the main producing countries. Generally speaking, the essential oils are produced during the metabolic production of plants and form at different heights in the individual plant parts. Due to the economics of recovery each of the plant part is taken for the production of essential oils on which most of the essential oil has deposited. These may be flowers, stems, leaves, root, peel or bark. There are even examples where several parts of plants are processed into different essential oils. For example, orange oil is obtained by squeezing out the peel, the extracts of the leaves give the petitgrain oil, and the orange blossom delivers the highly aromatic neroli oil. The main feature of the essential oils is their enormous volatility. There are only a few exceptions here (sandalwood, vetiver, patchouli, etc). Some of these oils, especially the citrus oils, are not noticeable after a few minutes. The Absolues are a special form of essential oil extraction. Very delicate plant parts, such as the flowers of jasmine or tuberose, are extracted by the extraction process with volatile solvents (hexane, ethanol). The extractants are then separated again. Essential oils are mainly used in pharmacy, aromatherapy, food industry and cosmetics. In the laboratories of our suppliers, they are checked for purity by means of elaborate analytical methods.
Evaporation in the aroma lamp
The aroma lamp is particularly suitable for living rooms, bedrooms, meeting rooms, for kitchens, children's rooms or meditation rooms. With the aroma lamp you can design your rooms with individual pieces. Add lukewarm water and a few drops of essential oil to the bowl of the aroma lamp. A candle under the shell heats the water and causes the essential oils to evaporate. After a short while, the room will fill with the fragrance you put together.
