Distilling Lemongrass for Oil and Hydrosol

Just finished distilling a batch of fresh Lemongrass from Jamaica.  The resulting oil is wonderful however the yield was low at 0.2%.  For curiosity's sake, I'll have the oil tested for Citral content.  It is apparently not worth importing the raw material for distillation here in Oregon.  It will make for a very expensive oil.
