There are so many great resources out there regarding distillation and essential oils – here are a few of our favorites:


  • Mike’s Stills. Excellent, efficient, business-level stills optimized for essential oil production of large batches of botanicals. Made by a master distiller in Portland, Oregon.
  • HeartMagic. Tabletop stills made of scientific glass; nice design and great for personal use and small test batches.
