The maceration is a technique of extraction which is done at ambient temperature.
Consists of immersing the plant suitably chopped (fresh or dried) in a liquid inside a
hermetically sealed container, for a variable time, depending on the plant material and
the liquid used.The solvent should be chosen according to the chemical nature of the
compounds contained within the plant, taking account of their solubility and the use to
which you want to make the extract. The alcohol generally is the solvent that is most used
for hydrophilic plants, that is soluble in water, and for plants lipophilic, soluble in oil or other
organic solvents. It uses a vegetable oil when you want to isolate only the components
lipophilic (fat), while the water is used to extract only the principles hydrophilic.
