Maceration (from the Latin. Macerare, "soften").
Unlike anfleroe, during maceration, the dried plant is placed in a glass jar with warm vegetable oil or animal fat heated to 50-70 degrees. Due to the effect of heat, aromatic molecules pass into the oil. The plant is infused in this way in it for several days, always in the light, periodically the container is shaken. The procedure is repeated 20-25 times with the same oil and the constant change of vegetable raw materials. After saturation with aromatic molecules, the vegetable oil is filtered, and the finished essential oil is poured into a vessel made of dark glass. The resulting product can be used without filtration as a massage oil.
