Our Essential Oils Extraction in Malaysia
The natural herbs and plants may change it medication value and nutrients compound due to heat. So all our essential oils are extracted by cold press or cold process helps to retain maximum nutrients compound from the natural plants or herbs.
Some manufacturer practice using steam distillation or solvent extraction because it is a easier way to extract essential oils.
Essential Oils by Steam Extraction
We use this method during making of Aromatic Fragrance Oils process only. Because steam extraction will only extracted scent from the plants or natural herbs, not the nutrients compound.
Common sense from method of distilling water. As we all known, we can from salt water, dirty water, river water or drain water distilled become clean water. Some countries even distilled drain oils or dirty oils become cooking oils. Meaning, distillation only helps to purify the water or oils become white and clean with nothing in it.
Therefore, some of the essential oils that you had used before from others manufacturer, may not perform the effectiveness or results as per claims.
Essential Oils by Solvent Extraction
Solvent commonly used in essential oils extraction. Major solvent contain high alcohol compound helps to increase the scent and lasting of the essential oils. Solvent been added to essential oils even after distillation to serve as preservative and scent enhancer.
Major solvent contain alcohol and gum, it may cause sensitiveness, itching or burning if use on direct skin application. Therefore many manufacturer will warn or remind the consumers about essential oils must be diluted with carrier oils or water before use. Again common sense, why we have to use if essential oils are so dangerous to skin.
Adding solvent to essential oils also helps prevent essential oils solidify. As we know, major natural oils will be solidify below 15°C ( Celsius ) especially coconut oil or nuts oils. Some cold countries manufacturer are adding up to 40% solvent or alcohol to prevent oils solidify.
It simple to test oils contains high solvent or gum :
Method 1 : Stick a paper to your essential oils, if it sticky, highly contains gum.
Method 2 : Mix your essential oils with water and heat up till dry. Normally you will see the brown gum layer remained at your burner, it hard to remove.
Method 3 : Put your essential oils to chiller or freezer, if the essential oils not solidify, it contained high alcohol. Remarks : Difference essential oils with have difference solidify degrees.
Malaysian majority are Muslim, so therefore solvent not used in our essential oils extraction.
