Yes. The Essential Oil Still E.O.S. is a rebranded improved version of the Aromator. If you remember the Aromator, then Thank You for your support and patience! We hope you will enjoy the E.O.S. and join us on our continued journey of bringing homemade, high quality Essential Oils to you.
E.O.S. stands for Essential Oil Still. Credit goes to Dr. Robert Pappas. He suggested the name while trying out our prototype. We loved the brilliance and simplicity of it, and rebranded the Aromator as E.O.S.
Every cycle produces 3.5 ounces of Hydrosol and between 1.5-4.0 ml or 20-60 drops of Essential Oil (depending on the herbs, some herbs are richer in oil than others).
Yes, we will have lots of information on our website on how to use the oils and hydrosols, and we will post new ideas and suggestions daily.
If you have specific questions, you'll be able to ask our in-house experts who will respond directly to your questions.
An Aroma-Cup is a clear capsule which will contain dried herbs, ready for use with E.O.S.
The Aroma-Cups will be made out of clear recyclable polypropylene.
Yes. However… [see answer to next question]
Yes. We will offer self-fill Aroma-Cups which you can fill with your own home grown herbs!
No, E.O.S works with live herbs as well. We chose to fill the Aroma-Cups with dried herbs in order to fit more herbs in per cycle- thus generating more oil.
We will start with the 25 most popular herbs. With over 300 types of herbs and countless blends there will never be a shortage of variety as we will continuously be adding new options.
Yes. The bottles you see in the video were used in the prototype. E.O.S will come with opaque (blue or brown) glass bottles for the oils and clear bottles for the hydrosols. You'll be able to order more bottles as you need them.
The front of E.O.S has a back-lit glass tube where the hydrosol and oil accumulate before being drained into their respective bottles. You see the whole process as it happens.
E.O.S has its own cleaning cycle. After you run it with an Aroma-Cup, E.O.S will require a cleaning cycle be run (you don't want residue of one oil to mix with the next oil you are making).
To clean, you simply put in clean water into the reservoir and push the button. The cleaning cycle takes less than 5 minutes. It removes all traces of oil from the previous cycle and is ready for a new Aroma-Cup.
You can use regular tap water or bottled water, whichever you prefer.
They are warm as they drip into the bottles.
It's about 12" tall and about 8" wide and 8" deep. It fits nicely on a kitchen counter (and looks good there too) but is small enough to fit into a cabinet for storage as well.
