Homemade Essential Oils Made Easy
Local Company Pioneers Extraction Process
After several years of development and promotion, a Corvallis-born business has streamlined the process of DIY oil extraction down to just five simple steps.
Founded in 2012 by Bill Dean and David Hackleman, OilExTech got its start as a research project at OSU focused on small-scale distillation of oils. The two men, along with three graduate students, discovered an efficient method of oil extraction using microwave ovens. From there, the men began a two and a half year development process.
