After highly efficient counter-current extraction, the oil will be extracted from the raw material and mixed with solvent. After desolventizing and evaporating process, lavender essential oil is separated from the solvent. That’s what the lavender essential oil is extracted. The biggest advantages to use this method for lavender essential oil is because of the general extraction temperature is no more than 40°C and the pressure is between 0.3 MPa ~ 1.0 MPa. Therefore, the whole extracting machine can better protect the final lavender essential oil from damages of extraction process.
