Essential oils are recognized for their aromatic smell and possess antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, antifungal, anticancer and bio pesticide properties. Due to these intriguing biological activities,m essential oils are widely applied in the cosmetic industry producing various cologne waters, bathing essences, hair lotions and shampoos and as a component of disinfectant and insecticides. As a result, the market demand for these valuable products has increased remarkably.
This has driven researchers and manufacturers to search for new methods of extraction in order to improve the yield without alteration of the qualitative traits of the products extracted. Thus, the extraction of essential oils under solventless essential oil extractor has been invented as one of the upcoming extraction techniques that can offer high reproducibility in shorter times, simplified manipulation, reduced solvent consumption and lower energy input.
