Lavender

Almost all the production of lavender is intended to be distilled for essential oil production. Today’s technique of distillation is the use of steam water invented by the Arabs.

The distillation technique has not changed a lot throughout the centuries. However, the development of cutting and cultivation brought about the evolution of the stills: from naked flame stills to bain-marie stills and eventually to steam stills.
