How do I distil essential oils?

Previously there has been a mention on the boxes and front of the instruction manuals of the Air Still stating that this unit should be used for distilling/extracting essential oils. This unit is not best used for distilling essential oils, this is best done using the Alembic Pot Still setup. However, it is possible to be done with the Air Still. This differs depending on the material you use. But a good guide is as follows: 

Rosemary - Use 300 g of rosemary leaves and 3.65 L of water (don't fill over the max amount). Turn the Air Still on, collect the distillate (preferable in fractions). We recommend collecting no more than 80% (3 L) otherwise it will boil dry and cook the rosemary.

You will collect 3 L of hydrosol (water/flavour) and a small amount of oil on top - the essential oils. Use a pipette to collect the essential oil. If you're going to make alcohol from this afterwards, boil 2-3 lots of water through it first otherwise your alcohol will smell like rosemary.

How do I distil water?

Before use, clean the inside of the still and fill it with clean water to the 4 litre (1 US gallon) line which is marked on the inside. Make sure that no water is spilt on the outside of the body and ensure that both electrical sockets are clean and dry.

  1. Fit the top cover of the still in place and plug the fan lead into the socket in the still body.
  2. Place a 4 litre (1 US gallon) collection jug (not supplied) under the outlet nozzle.
  3. Press the reset button on the base of the still.
  4. Connect the main power cord between the still and the mains power socket.
  5. Turn on the mains power socket switch.
  6. You will hear the fan in the top cover of the still start.
  7. It will take about 1½ hours for the water to heat up.
  8. Once distillation starts, water will begin to drip into the collection bottle.
  9. The still will take about 10 hours to distil off the 4 litres (1 US gallon) .
  10. The power supply reset switches off automatically when the distillation is completed.
  11. You will need to press the reset button on the base of the still before you next use it. After distillation the water needs to be polished. We recommend filtering the distilled water through a Still Spirits Air Still Carbon Filter.

Please note: It’s illegal to distil alcohol for consumption in Australia without a license from the ATO

It is a bit slower

It is a bit slower than the 4 L distiller that I have been using for years, even when only actually filling it with 4 L of tapwater. But It was delivered very quickly and it appears to be of very high quality. Better quality than most that I have seen. I would be happy to buy another one if required.

No turning back after using this.

That's right - i had been using traditional methods for over a year but the hassle of gas, water supply, lots and lots of careful babying meant i was spending up to 7 hours in the garage on a weekend afternoon! The wife was not happy! So i looked into this - got it and i am blown away! Yes the first batch tasted a bit 'funny' but after batch 2 and 3, it's better tasting than my copper still was and there's far less filtration required. Just so easy it's unbelievable plus the results are consistent and you could virtually set your clock against the timing of this thing!
