About Essential Oil Distiller
Take a deep breath and relax — the use of an essential oil distiller can make taking that breath both easier and less costly. Used for thousands of years, essential oils are simple concentrated liquids made from plants that contain a strong aroma used in everything from stress relief to the treatment of otherwise resistant strains of bacteria. When you use an essential oil distiller, you create the oil yourself from its component parts. This begins when you take the plant compounds including flowers, bark, leaves, seeds, and more and suspend them over heated water. As steam passes through, the vapors become liquid, which the distiller then collects for later use either topically or through inhalation. This rather complex process is a way to save money on the purchase of common oils, such as lavender, peppermint, and eucalyptus, as well as explore more complex oils and blends through experimentation. Different styles of distiller allow novice and professional oil makers the ability to create their own oils or blends through a series of tubes and heating elements of increasing complexity and price. When you shop the vast inventory on eBay, it is easy to explore these different styles of essential oil distillers to find one that matches your price range and skill set. The deep relaxing aroma of essential oils has the ability to calm and heal, but getting them from plant to tincture takes time and the right equipment.
