Distillation:

This essential oil is sustainably extracted through steam distillation. No chemical solvents are involved. The oil is extracted by passing a vapor stream through the dry wood, opening its oil glands, and allowing the essential oil to mix with the steam. It is then passed through a cooling system to condense the plant’s natural essence.
