Process Of Essential Oil Extraction
What Makes a Quality Essential Oil?
GloryBee offers high quality oils carefully selected for their purity and potency. Our essential oils are never diluted with other oils and are true essential oils, not infused oils or fragrance oils. Many of the oils we buy have been produced for generations by the same families. We use a number of these food grade oils ourselves for our great-tasting essential oil-flavored HoneyStix.
PROCESS OF EXTRACTION: STEAM DISTILLED
Steam distillation of essential oils is done by passing hot steam through plant material, which causes the essential oil molecules to escape from the plant material into the steam. Next, the steam undergoes a condensation and cooling process, then enters a separator which divides the water and essential oil.
PROCESS OF EXTRACTION: COLD PRESSED
Cold pressing of essential oil is done by pressing plant material to release the essential oil. This is the method most commonly used for citrus oils. Cold pressing is a type of expeller pressing.
