The steam distillation is a technique that allows to extract
essential oils from herbs (fresh or dried) by their transport
by water vapor. The passage of the steam, generated by
boiling water, through the plant material, makes the cell
walls more permeable, up to breakage and leakage of the
essential oil, which is condensed in a serpentine cooled
by a recirculating water , separating into essential oil and
floral water. the essential oil settles on the surface as it
has lower density.
