Essential oils are fragrant oils that are present in many plants. Hundreds of plants yield essential oils that are used as perfumes, food flavorings, medicines, and as fragrant and antiseptic additives in many common products.

Essential oils are processed by variations of the general technique of steam distillation. The variations are generally governed by the degree of contact of the steam /water with the plant raw material, and such factors as the rate of passage of the steam through it.

At Bio Extracts, a battery of stainless steel stills is operated with steam from an external boiler. Thus, the degree of wetness of the steam, as well as its rate, can be carefully controlled and optimally adjusted according to the requirement of each type of raw material. One of the main features of good manufacturing process (GMP) is process monitoring by systematic record keeping. This assiduously carried out at our factory.

All this ensures for the buyers, the best possible quality of oil, generated from the famed spices and aromatic plants from the island Sri Lanka
