Although the extraction of essential oils is complicated and costly it can be done through patience and dedication. Normally the herbs are distilled (steamed) and is a labor intensive method to collect the oils.
You need to grow a tremendous amount of herbs to distill even 1 fluid ounce.
For this reason it is better left to the professionals. Or you could grow them to be a supplier or for your own personal organic medicinal pharmacy.
Essential oils have a remarkable range of herb uses in food, cosmetics, and medicinal usage.
