Essential Oil Distillation
Please note: the cloudy fluids that you see are the hydrosol, basically a water with some aroma. The tiny amount of yellow fluid on top of the cloudy fluid is the essential oil, estimated in this video as perhaps an ounce. You will never feel bad about the price you are paying for essential oil when you factor in the cost of land, the labor of planting, weeding, harvesting, distilling, bottling, and labeling.
Here is another type of distillation equipment, but again, you see that for all the effort, the yield is quite fine, very nice for personal use but hardly for commercial purposes.
