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.
