How Are These Oils Extracted?
There are 4 main ways that Essential Oils are extracted, There is “distillation” the use of steam, “Expression” the of a press, “Solvent Extraction” the use of solvents such as Hexane, and there is Florasols Extraction” another form of solvent extraction.”
Distillation is used for oils like Lavender, Tea Tree, Peppermint, Eucalyptus, and Patchouli. The process involves taking raw plant material, such as the Leaves, Flowers, Wood, Bark, Seeds, Peel, or roots are put into an Alembic (Distillation Appliance) over water. The water is then heated until steam passes through the plant material causing the compounds to vaporize. The vapors then pass through a coil, where they condense back to liquid form. To be collected by a receiving vessel. For most oils distilling is a single process. With one exception being Ylang Ylang which requires fractional distillation.
Expression is used for oils such as Lemon and Sweet Orange. The process involves taking the citrus peel and compressing it to release the oils. Two common ways to compress the peels are mechanically or cold-pressed.
Solvent Extraction is saved for flowers that contain too little oil to undergo expression, and their oils are too delicate to be exposed to the high temperatures involved in distillation. This process used a solvent such as Hexane to extract the oils. These mixtures are called concentrates which are a mixture of essential oils, resins, and waxes. To separate the oils the concentrate is mixed with Ethyl Alcohol and chilled to 0°F (-18°C) for more than two days, causing the waxes to precipitate out. The ethanol is then removed by evaporation, vacuum our or both.
Florasols Extraction is a type of solvent extraction that uses a solvent called Florasol. Florasol was originally made as a replacement for Freon, A cooling agent used in refrigerators and air conditioners. One of the advantages of florasol extraction is that the essential oils are mostly pure with little to no foreign substances.
Where Are These Oils Sourced?
Each of our oils are sourced from their native environments, ensuring they are from the purest source.
Can You Ingest These Oils?
A question that you will get several different answers to, some companies claim that you can ingest oils others advise against it. We do not recommend ingesting essential oils as we are not medical professionals. There is no such thing as food grade oils and the FDA does not classify essential oils as food grade. Our essential oils are pure and of the highest quality, please speak to a medical professional before ever ingesting any oils.
Are These Therapeutic Grade Oils?
Therapeutic oil refers to the way an oil is processed. However the FDA does not register the use of the term therapeutic oils and does not govern or regulate the use of this term. There is essentially no such thing as therapeutic grade oils.
