(Lotions / Potions / Etc. - Project)
This team explores methods and equipment for the distillation of essential oils through steam extraction. Both copper stills and lab glass methods will be examined. We will focus on trying to determine the ideal setup and conditions for extraction under a number of scenarios. For example: rose oil requires double boiling, while a plant like lavender is trivial to process with steam. So if you're into making essential oils, this may be the group for you.
