Agarwood Oil Extraction

The main factor when extracting the important oil is to make certain that the fungus inoculated from the tree is 8-12 years old so as to acquire the oil. The extraction method is performed via steam or water distillation. In the very first phase of steam distillation procedure, that the Agarwood is immersed in water to get one-three months. Subsequently, the stained timber is set in huge boilers in which the water evaporates in addition to the resin and accumulated in condenser. The steam extraction technique is much more popular at the East — Asian nations.


Water Distillation Procedure:

Water purification is the procedure for getting essential oils. Inside this technique, Agarwood chips are totally submerged in water, making a timber’soup’, followed closely by boiling process in enormous boilers. The steam comprising the plant molecules is recorded and condensed, and the oil floats to the peak of the distilled water part. When the conductive substance melts, the oil and hydrosol are split as well as the essential oil is obtained.

Water Distillation Process:

This technique protects the petroleum extracted into a certain level, because the surrounding water functions as a barrier to stop it from overheating. Water purification can be done at a lower pressure (a vacuum) to significantly decrease the temperature to less than 100°C, which is beneficial in protecting plant substance in addition to the critical oil. Although water purification is the most frequent way of extracting and extracting the oils for perfumery, the high temperatures may also ruin the most delicate odor molecules, therefore water purification will be the preferred method. But, it’s a time consuming procedure and requires considerable quantities of plant material.

Steam Distillation Procedure:

Steam distillation is believed to be the best way for the isolation and extraction of essential oils. The heat opens the pores of this plant which comprises the aromatic oils or molecules. Once exposed, the plant discharges those fatty molecules and in such a condition, the aromatic molecules can rise together with the steam. The vapors carrying these molecules traveling inside a closed system to the cooling apparatus. Since the vapor cools, it condenses and can be changed to a liquid condition. Later, the liquid is collected in a container and just like with any sort of oil/water mix, it divides. The oils float towards the surface while the water melts below. The oil is extremely condensed and utilized in aromatherapy. Both of these processes determine the quantity, quality and odor of petroleum produced. Roughly 8,000-10,000 kg of Agarwood is required to produce 1 liter of petroleum. The key contents are sesquiterpenes, phenyl ethyl chromones and many others such as selinene, eudesmene. The standard of the oil could be analyzed using a Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS).
