Steps to reproduce

  1. Dry ginger pieces of width 5mm length 6mm depth 2mm at 50 C in an oven until moisture content is 10-12%
  2. Mix 100g of dried ginger pieces with 500ml water in a 1000ml two necked flat bottom round bottom flask
  3. Fix a thermometer to one neck of the flat bottom flask and immerse it in the mixture. Let temperature come to 70C and maintain for about 15 min then increase to 80C and this is the distilling temperature
  4. Dydro-distill the content using a clavenger light oil arm for 4 hours.
  5. collect essential oil and add 0.5 g of anhydrous Sodium sulfate and keep for GC analysis
