Our trial: harvesting and distillation

The harvesting

The harvesting has to be done by hand again, to get the pure flower only, in full respect of the plant. Although difficult to imagine that nowadays, this manual method is the only one capable of producing the quality we’re waiting for.

From our basket come a powerful smell : fruity and lovely honey notes. An olfactive beauty but also a visual one.

The distillation

Our first distillation steps were done with a copper alembic (still). Each piece of it was sealed with a natural mastic made of flour and water : no leak certified.

 The organic chamaemelum nobile (camomile) distillation produced a light yellow essentiel oil. The quality is exceptionnal, beyond our expectations, with a wonderful perfume. The chromatography of this essential oil will confirm it : a quality close to perfection.

 A promising result for the next to come plantations of our farmer collaborator.
