Destilation of the Immortelle with water vapor takes place in distillation boilers of different capacities. In distillation boilers, the Immortelleis stored on a perforated surface, through by water heating, water vapor is released. Water pairs extract the essential oil of Immortelle and so they flow into the capacitor. Water with essential oil is decanted in a separate vessel, where the oil as the lighter substance is separated on the surface of the water. Small amounts of essential oil are always contained in the distilled water from which the oil layer is separated. Those are: Aqua aromaticae or flower water, hydrolytes. They can also represent significant revenue because their application can be found in the cosmetics industry and in the soap and perfume industry. Essential oils are stored at low temperatures in a dark place. It is important that containers in which the oil is kept vacuum-tight to prevent polymerization and loss of quality.
Many essential oils contain dissolved smaller amounts of water. Water is very destructive to essential oils – due to its hydrolysis of the ester and the accelerated oxidation process of some hydrocarbons.
During storage, the water slowly separates from essential oils and sank, and in the filling process in small packs the water is filled with essential oil. Therefore, it is necessary that the manufacturer carefully processes the decanting (separation) of essential oil and hydrolates. If necessary, the essential oils must be dried with anhydrous sodium sulfate to remove residual moisture. Such a process is permitted because of the inertness of sodium sulphate which does not change the olfactory and chemical properties of the oil. Use other drying resources such as sodium hydroxide, calcium chloride or phosphorous pentoxide is not permitted, because the molecules of essential oils react with these substances.
