Separating Hydrosol From Essential Oil

Sharing is caring!

Big companies have specialized equipment to separate the naturally occurring hydrosol from the essential oils they are seeking, but what is a person with a simple still to do?


The answer is easy, simply pour your distilled product into a freezer proof glass container, put a lid on it and freeze it.

The hydrosol, which is mostly water will freeze, while the essential oil will not freeze.

Once the hydrosol is completely frozen you can pour off the essential oil.

Be sure to allow the hydrosol to melt as it is a useable product too.

Keep the essential oil as well as the hydrosol in the refrigerator.

Both products should be good up to a year.

Do keep in mind, you may end up with some hydrosol in your essential oil and some essential oil in your hydrosol.

This is not an exact science, but it is the easiest way I have found to separate the two products in your standard home situation without investing in a lot of equipment.
