Steam Distilling medicinal essential oils?
    #4536007 - 08/15/05 12:38 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Don't know if this is the right forum, but here goes. I'm wondering if one could steam distill an essential oil of a mushroom. For example; in reishi mushrooms there are a lot of target compounds that one may be interested in. Polysaccarides, triterpenoids, nucleotides, glycoproteins, etc. Most extractions are either;
1. Hot water extraction
2. Cold water extraction
3. Alcohol extraction
and any combination thereof. (I know I'm missing some.)
Usually the combinations of these methods contain the most bioactive materials, so one has to go through several extraction processes (still no problem when considering many of these mushrooms are known to aid in the fight against cancer - successfully, and well documented).

Steam distillation of herbs, root barks, flowers, etc. gives us many wonderful pure essential oils. Anyone know if this can be done? Tried it? One day I will, so I'll keep ya'll posted.
Light and Love,
Jeremy Davis
