The production of essential oils is based on the method of steam distillation under controlled technological conditions. The whole process is automated and goes through several stages. The lavender flower is placed in insulated distillation apparatus, in which high-pressure steam is fed, thus the heat treatment of the material is performed. The vapors are directed to the shell-and-tube heat exchanger and, as it passes through it, the mixture of steam, aromas and oil cools and turns into a liquid which moves to the Florentine vessel. In it, the essential oil is separated from the aromatic water by decantation.

The company has modern production facilities, guaranteeing the high quality of the final products. The equipment of the distillery has a capacity of 33 m2: 6 pcs. distillation apparatus with a capacity of 5.5 m3, as well as 2 pcs. of cohobation columns with a capacity of 2.5 m³ each.

Apart from essential oils, a by-product is obtained after the distillation process, that is the so-called natural aromatic or floral water. Its use is most widespread in cosmetics (including pet cosmetics). In addition to having a wonderful fragrance, these products also have a therapeutic, calming, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, hydrating, healing and cleansing effect, especially for dry, sensitive and problematic skin. They are easy to use because they do not require pre-dissolution.

The produced oils and aromatic waters are safe and can be used in the compositions of a wide range of cosmetic products without any problems: shampoos, conditioners, shower gels and body lotions, face and body creams, toothpastes, etc. They are stable and compatible with traditional cosmetic raw materials.
