The main process for the production of essential oils is called distillation. The essential oils are extracted from the plant raw material by steam, and the separation of the aromatic substances from the water happens through purely physical principles.
Depending on the type of raw material for processing, the technological equipment in the Ecomaat Distillery allows the production of essential oils and floral waters by steam, water, and water-steam distillation. The principles of distillation have been known since ancient times and today they are still fundamental in the production of essential oils.
Modern technologies, experience, and traditions
In our modern distillery in the village of Mirkovo, we combine the expertise of more than 150 years of experience and tradition in the production of essential oils, with Bulgarian “know-how” and technological improvements that allow full control of operating parameters, which are of paramount importance for the process of distillation.
Over 50 hectares of own gardens
The proximity of our gardens to the Ecomaat Distillery allows fast delivery of plant raw materials immediately after harvest, as well as immediate processing, which in most cases is extremely important for the quality of the produced essential oils.
