Preparation

We recommend that you remove as much of the lavender stem as possible before extraction. You can follow our manual for further details on lavender oil diy extraction.

The Extraction Process

  • Set the reactor and a mug of water into your microwave. (Should you have more than one batch, please change water between each trial.)
  • Each batch should run for seven minutes on power setting “High” (or 1100 watts).

Very Important Step! Allow the batch to cool for two minutes inside the microwave. Once these two minutes are complete, carefully remove the reactor and let it cool for an additional two minutes on a cloth. Before opening the lid!

Collection

Once you have finished the lavender oil diy extraction process, you may pour top contents of the beaker into the easy separator and rotate it using your palms of your hands while resting it on a cloth on a hard surface. (The motion described should be like kindling a fire with sticks.) After a few moments, stop rotating and check the oil layer. Should there be more oil, repeat. Once the oil is separated aboce the hydrosol in the neck of the flask, use the pipette to place it in a vial. Finally, use the hydrosol as you wish.

Lavender oil diy is great for baths, massages, as a pillow refresher or even as an insect repellent. For a list of possible recipes for lavender essential oil, please see our lavender essential oil recipes page.
