This essential oil is sustainably extracted through a process known as steam distillation. No chemical solvents are involved. The oil is first extracted by passing a vapor stream through the dry wood, opening its oil gland, and allowing the essential oil to mix with the steam. Next, the oil is passed through a cooling system to obtain condensation through the plant’s natural essence.
