Re: new member big hi from australia
Love the name - lots of us around here (but we getting old lol).. For distilling fragrant oils and stuff, you dont want to go the refux route. Reflux stills perform many distillations in a single run.
What you want is a simple pot still with a small boiler. Actually you can distill essence with just a tea kettle, some small diameter flexible copper tubing and a simple bucket condenser.
You can read up on distilling theory and see all kinds of designs on Tony's Homedistiller's site at http://www.homedistiller.org/ Read thru the intro and theory/design sections and come back with any answers.
Welcome aboard and good luck.
