Essential Oil Steam Distillation Apparatus

The steam distillation process can be used to remove the volatile components (essential oils) from organic matter. In this process, steam is passed through the plant material containing the desired oils. The energy stored in the steam is transferred to the oil which causes the oil to undergo a phase change from a liquid to a vapor state. The steam and vaporized oil are then condensed and collected. The end products, oil and water can be further separated using a separatory funnel.
