Production facilities

Herbs and flowers processing, takes place at our company's central facilities. These premises are visitable and include :

Essential oils distillery 

In our essential oils distillery, we use steam distillation process. Steam distillation is the most common way to extract aromatic compounds (essential oil) from a plant.

During the steam distillation process, steam passes through the plant material. The combination of heated steam and gentle pressure causes the essential oil to be released from microscopic protective sacs. As the vapor mixture flows through a condenser and cools, it yields a layer of oil and a layer of water. The essential oil rises to the top and is separated from the hydrosol (floral water) and collected.

Herbal extractor

Herbal extracts are substances extracted from the plant using different solvents. We use water, alcohol, natural oils and vegetable glycerine that work to draw out beneficial plant components. 

Seeds cold press 

Cold pressing is the method that we use to extraction oil from oilseeds which include  grapeseeds, pomegranate seeds and prickly pear seeds without really using heat to extract as that may degrade the oil's flavour and nutritional quality.
