Essential oils are made from plant produce like leaf, flowers, stems, bark, gum/resins , roots etc. The best and ages old method of making the essential oil from plants has been the steam distilled only. Many other methods of making essential oil has been introduced past some years like CO2 extraction, solvent extraction etc. which no doubt gives high yield but are not as nutrient rich as are steam distilled essential oils.
We often come across essential oils that are only meant for external use. So it is difficult to judge the quality of essential oil.
Therefore we at Gangaa Jal believe that ancient technique although gives little yield but are highly nutrient rich, pure with no addition of any third ingredient like solvent etc.
We steam distil the fresh herb as well as dry herb for making the essential oils. We source dry tea making herbs when we do not find a fresh herb to make the essential oil.
