Era, between myth and alchemy, towards the fifth essence

Era: Zeus's mythological wife, queen of Olympus gives the name to this essential oils extractor, recalling a time, an era, the era of green, the rediscovery of nature and man's ability to make the most of plant species and their beneficial and nutraceutical principles.

Our "era" marks the beginning of a new time for natural food, drink and aromatherapy, and thanks to Era Extractor it is possible to explore and obtain pure aromatic essential oils.

This is the new pillar of lost natural tastes. Era works in transparency for its borosilicate glass, extremely simple to use even for amateurs.

Material: 3.3 borosilicate glass

The Era essential oil extractor has very ancient origins and uses the steam current distillation technique.

This technique allows to extract the essential oils present in the flowers, leaves, roots, woods and berries.

It is therefore possible to use Era for all fresh and dry plants whose oil can be extracted in a steam stream.

  • Pour the water into the reactor until it touches the metal grid placed inside;
  • Place the plants on top of the gray inside the reactor, close the lid and affix the condensing and collection glassware to the top;
  • Activate the glass cooling circuit using running water;
  • Turn on the electric or infrared hob and wait for the water to simmer slightly (avoid tumultuous boiling);
  • Upon reaching a temperature of about 100°C, the steam will begin to rise and as it crosses the plant it will drag the essential oils present in it with it. The steam mixed with essential oils will be cooled in the condensation chamber and will be transformed into hydrosol or flavored water inside the glass burette;
  • At the end of the distillation deactivate the plate avoiding that the water inside the reactor evaporates completely causing a risk of thermal shock due to excessive overheating of the glass with consequent risk of breakage of the glass itself;
  • The liquid obtained will accumulate in the final ampoule of the burette where the separation of the essential oil from the hydrosol takes place: this process is relatively simple, considering that the essential oil is lighter than water and tends to remain on the surface;
  • First recover the hydrosol and then the essential oil thanks to the tap positioned in the lower part of the burette.
