Essential Oils


John Dore himself developed the manufacture of essential oil stills following the Victorian Great Depression of 1873. These stills were manufactured from copper sheet and tinned internally, as stainless steel had not been invented.

Our smallest unit, made out of standard glassware, has a pot capacity of 5 Litres (about 1 Imp. Gal.) and the largest manufactured out of stainless steel, a capacity of 5,000 Litres (1,100 Imp. Gal.).

The economics of producing essential oils depends upon the cost of growing, harvesting and the fuel for distillation. We have a 50 Litre (11 Imp. Gal.) pot design which can be used to produce samples of oils for evaluation.
