What is solvent extracted? Many essential oils are distilled in steam/water with the essential oil removed from plant material through the steam. However, some plant material does not produce enough or is very costly to extract essential oils. This is where solvent extraction is useful. It involves another step, where the plant material is exposed to hexane and ethanol, before distillation, to improve solubility and removal of the aromatic part. It is more productive but more expensive. You also get a product that smells more like the original plant
