OUR DISTILLATION SERVICES
In addition to distilling our own sourced material on-site at Lavender Row, we are also able to provide distillation services to others. If you are interested and have 60kg of material or more, please contact us to discuss whether we can help you produce your own essential oil. Later in the year we will also have a smaller 25kg still operating which would be ideal for processing smaller quantities from home or lifestyle properties.
Our Essential Oils are produced using a patented steam vacuum distillation unit
The system uses vacuum to keep temperatures low. The working temps are between 70 and 98 degrees celsius. This means the process is a lot calmer and less damaging to the fragile oils, so we are protecting the top notes. A vacuum environment also stress the holding sacks for the oils causing them to burst on some plant material. "Like Thyme"
Further to this there is a small reduction in energy to keep the still running so a cost saving.
