How to Make Essential Oils:
To all our Mayan's Secret followers and subscribers, and to all of you essential oil lovers.
Do you know how essential oils go from plant matter to bottle? Because u when you understand the processes behind them, we know you will absolutely love them that much more.
How to Source Your Essential Oils
Here at Mayan's Secret we take our practices very seriously. At Mayan’s Secret we bottle only the finest premium essential oils that 100% pure unrefined and farm grown, organically and 100% pure.
How the Essential Oil Extraction Process Works
You may have heard terms like “extraction” and “distillation,” but what do they mean and how are they different? Extraction describes the general process of separating essential oils from plant matter, and distillation is one method of extraction.
Did you know, Mayan's Secret oils are steam distilled to give us essential oils.
So Wat Are the Different Types of Essential Oil Extractions?
Here are two primary methods of turning plants into essential oils.
The Steam Distillation Process:
The remaining water (depending on the oil being distilled) becomes hydrosol, a product created from plants that contain water-soluble aromatic compounds. One worth trying?

You know, the best way to harvest plant matter is resin tapping. We tap the tree to release the resin, dry it, and then distill it. Some oils you know and love come from this process, including Frankincense, and Myrrh.
Cold pressing and What it Means for your Oils
Another method of extraction is cold pressing, which usually involves the entire fruit. All Mayan's Secret citrus oils, like the luxuriously scented Bergamot, come from this method in particular, which the oils are then extracted for their seriously fragrant scents we all love.
