Thanks to the removable copper sieve in the upper part of the still (in the column), the entire upper section of the still can be filled with plant material. That guarantees the maximum yield.All in all, a masterpiece. Distillation Essential Oils And Hydrosol Ukrainian Copper Distiller - YouTube. Choose the herbs / flowers for producing essential oils 2 Prepear your herbs to extracting process (adding salt) 3. Assemble distiller and fill up the flavor column with herbs / flowers 4. Heat up the distiller until it starts boiling. Start distilling process and collect the flavored water 6... After a few minutes of distillate production a fine layer of oil begins to form on top of the water 7. Use syringes to remove the water from the oil. So, before proceeding to the distillation, it is necessary prepeare the raw materials(our herbs or flowers), put your herbs\flowers for 6 - 12 hours in pure water, adding salt to it. Salt we take 1 tbsp. For 1 - 1.5 liters of water. Salt increase extraction of biological substances from raw materials. Water should cover the raw material, for which it is most convenient to use a lid of a smaller diameter, using it as a kind of oppression. Also I want to notice, that it would be better to use distilling water (Without any impurities of HCL). The pot is 2/3 filled with water and placed on a gas ring to bring the water to the boil. Its important to have everything at hand for a distillation. I connect the water hose with water tap and keep a steady flow of cold water running through the condenser bucket, my sterile beakers and oil separators are ready to collect the distillate. And of course I have harvested and prepared my herb. The leaves and flowers have been stripped from the stems of the Rosemary and sit fragrantly waiting.
It is the same harvest I used for the hydro-distillation 3. I place five good handfuls of rosemary into the column. When the water in the pot is boiling, I start working quickly.
If I lose any steam, I will lose precious essential oil. By the time I have done this, the steam has spiralled up the column, the heat burst open the cells of the plant and the volatile oils released and carried in the steam. The steam spirals in the flavoring column, any particles of dust of physical matter falls back.
The steam flows down the birds beak, through the connecting pipe and into the condenser coil. It is vital to have a steady stream of cool water runing around the condenser coil throughout the whole distillation. The water needs to be boiling vigorously to create a good body of steam under pressure to burst the cellulose of the plants to release the essential oil. The essential oil will be released in the first 200ml of distillate.
On a 5 L still I collect 250 ml of Hydrosol. The oil has been expelled from the mass of water and floats to the top. The aroma is stronger, sharper and more intense than in a hydro distillation. Depending on my purpose I may continue distilling for hydrosol.There will be very little oil in the next 300 ml but often the hydrosol is still of a good aroma, flavour and pH. As soon as the pH increases I stop the distillation. You can store your hydrolates in a tightly closed glass jar in the refrigerator for up to 1 year.
You can pour them into molds and freeze them - they do not lose their properties when frozen. On average, you will get hydrolates in such ratio - 1 to 5 liters per kilogram of plant material and vary depending on the plant. Paying for items with a credit or debit card.
