Here is the distillation process used for extracting natural essential oils from plants like Spearmint. The oils are used for soap and other recipes. I am using a Essential Oil Steam Distillation Apparatus like this one:

Results of 40 gallons of Vermicompost Compost Tea once per week

Please watch my show: PAINT By MONSTER! Our 2013 tomatoes, corn, cucumbers and melons as of Aug 6th, 2013. Planted June 1st in Central Indiana, Zone 5, one of the nicest summers I can ever remember very mild weather. Brewing compost tea from vermicompost and last year's outdoor compost, screened, in equal parts, about 6 lbs total, in a 40 gallon trash can. Kelp meal, corn meal and unsulphured black strap molasses added. Aerated for 24 hours. (Fish effluent added once so far.) De-chlorinated the water with the aerator for 24 hours first. Diluted the end product with about 15 more gallons of de-chlorinated water. It's my first year to really do compost tea and I'm sold on the results.

Agarwood, also known as oud, oodh or agar, is a dark resinous heartwood that forms in Aquilaria and Gyrinops trees (large evergreens native to southeast Asia) when they become infected with a type of mould. Prior to infection, the heartwood is relatively light and pale coloured; however, as the infection progresses, the tree produces a dark aromatic resin in response to the attack, which results in a very dense, dark, resin embedded heartwood. The resin embedded wood is commonly called gaharu, jinko, aloeswood, agarwood, or oud (not to be confused with 'Bakhoor') and is valued in many cultures for its distinctive fragrance, and thus is used for incense and perfumes. One of the main reasons for the relative rarity and high cost of agarwood is the depletion of the wild resource. Since 1995 Aquilaria malaccensis, the primary source, has been listed in Appendix II (potentially threatened species) by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora. In 2004 all Aquilaria species were listed in Appendix II; however, a number of countries have outstanding reservations regarding that listing. Oud (in Arabian 'oudh') is highly valued by perfumers for its sweet, woody, aromatic and complex scent. It is used in forms of oud oil (dehn al oud) or raisin (oud mubakhar). The oil of oud, whether extracted by distillation from wood, or by melting the raisin, is non-irritating and can be applied directly on the skin, or added in a perfume composition, most often as a base note.

Its value is estimated as 1.5 times of the value of gold, and it is sometimes referred to as 'liquid gold'. Long prized as a perfume ingredient in the Middle East and Europe, oud has recently made great gains in popularity in the West. Oud plays a starring role in several North American perfumes for women, including Pure Oud Eau by Killian, Oud Intense by Comptoir Sud Pacifique, Midnight Oud Eau de Parfum by Juliette Has a Gun, and Bond No. 9 New York Oud. It is also used in Sensuous by Estee Lauder, Twilight Woods by Bath & Body Works, Amouage Epic Woman by Amouage, and Daphne by Comme de Garcons.

Autumn leaves contain a range of interesting substances such as pigments, carbohydrates, lignings, proteins and compounds that inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria. VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd is developing leaf-processing technologies, which could be used for example by the cosmetic, textile and gardening industries.
