2 LITER ESSENTIAL OIL STEAM DISTILLATION KIT
The perfect system for making your own STEAM DISTILLED essential oils!
This is a true vertical steam distillation unit made from
scientific-grade borosilicate glass, specifically designed for easy
steam extraction of essential oils from plant materials by the
non-chemist at home, resulting in the highest purity essential oilsUnlike
other steam distillation units on the market, this system offers true
"dry steam" distillation in an all glass (Pyrex) system. Coupled
together with ground glass joints, there are no hoses or rubber
stoppers in contact with your product...it's ALL glass!
This system's underlying design addresses a number of problems
associated with competitives stills, Because of it's "vertical" design,
the biomass flask stays dry, none of the "boiling water" is wastefully
condensed and trapped in the biomass flask, and because it uses
separate flasks for boiling and biomass, there's no risk of overheating
or possibly burning your plant material.
UNIQUELY DESIGNED RECEIVER
(click for info) traps up to 20mL of either "heavier than water" oils
or "lighter than water" oils while automatically draining away the
excess condensed water (the "Hydrosol", that can be kept for many
purposes) thus allowing you to start the distillation and let it
proceed on it's own without constant need of attention.When
the distillation is complete, the receiver then doubles as a tapered
separatory funnel, allowing you to easily separate your prized oil from
the remaining water.

Here's some practical considerations of other units on the market and this system
Problem: Lots of water always condenses in the biomass
flask- it's unavoidable, and it accumulates and eventually covers up a
lot of the plant material I'm trying to distill. Solution: In
this vertical system, that water simply drips back down into the
boiling flask to be reused, instead of accumulating in the biomass
flask being wasted and causing plant material to become flooded and no
longer in contact with steam. This system's vertical design insures that the biomass stays dry. Problem: I have to constantly add water to the steam generator flask Solution: Because
the water condensed in the biomass flask is returned to the boiling
flask, this system can go for three hours or more without having to add
new water to the boiling pot. There's a ground glass stopper in the side of the boiling flask to make water addition very easy, in case you need to.
Problem: The distiller takes up the whole room, it's so big and spread out Solution: This system's vertical design is very compact and doesn't take up the whole kitchen sink!!
Uncondensed steam occasionally comes out of the end of the condenser...isn't this potentially loosing precious oil?
Unlike systems with vertical "up-going" or traditional 105 degree
angled condensers from which uncondensed steam can often escape, this
system has a vertical "down-going" condenser in which the steam is
forced straight down. This insures excellent agitation of the vapors
and complete condensation, with no chance of steam or product escaping,
even when using room-temperature tap water for cooling instead of ice
water and a pump, which is often recommended in other systems
Here's a photo of the system set up and ready to distill some freshly picked ROSEMARY The yield in this setup was aprox. 3mL (3/4 of a dram)
Here's some oils I've recently distilled with an identical kit, from herbs and things in our garden NOTE These vials are the result of ONE distillation of the herb, ie we packed the bioflask full and this is what we were rewarded with! The quantities vary with the actual type of herb, when it's picked, where it lives, etc, but this is a good representation of what you can expect!
Here's the receiver in operation- note the oil layer
Here's all the individual parts: (hotplate is included but it's not in this photo)
Here's a diagram of it
