How therapeutic-grade essential oils are produced at an organic herb farm from start to finish.

At Maravel, there are three critical steps to distillation. The first is in the cooking process - the plant material must be compressed just right, so that when the steam goes through, it can maintain proper pressure and proper flow. There are even special preparing controls in the cooking chambers to reduce the risk of the essential oil being "refluxed" or burned during distillation. Condensing is the next process. The condensing system is very critical. It must be balanced in such a way that it produces the maximum amount of oil with minimal waste. The third step is the separation process. With three phases of separation, a higher percentage of molecules are recovered, giving Maravel oils the highest quality and the highest standard in the world today. That's why they are often referred to as gourmet oils.
