How to Make Lavender Oil by Steam Distillation?
At the end of January, we start to harvest our lavender plant from our lavender fields. Every year is exciting. Each lavender bud is filled near to its bursting point with essential oil. At this time of the year you will be surrounded by sweet lavender aroma.
We stuff the lavender into the HUGE lavender bucket to start the steam distillation. Then we stomp on it to compact the lavender.
WARNING: It is not easy. Very tiring.
Then we heaved ( With our fingers on remotes, of course) the lavender into the insulated steam cooker.
6 minutes later the lavender oil has already started to drip. When the first drip drops we were wrapped with ribbons of lavender fragrance.
After 45 LOOONG minutes ....
