We have a distillation plant with a satellite boiler and
use direct steam to extract the essential oil perfumes
The Cape Chestnut seeds are cold pressed using a Komet
screw expeller. Seeds are fed into the hopper together
with dried aromatic plant material. Under pressure the
extracted oil absorbs the perfume and colour of the dried
herbs and roots, resulting in a naturally coloured and
perfumed oil. This forms the basis of all the soaps, massage
oils and moisturising creams
In the laboratory the extracted oils and distilled perfumes
are made into the body care products.
In the packing room bulk essential oils of myrrh and frankincense
are packed in laquered steel drums for export. The finished
body care products are bottled or gift wrapped in locally
crafted banana fibre boxes or wooden bowls.
