water distillation

water distillation,

n a method for extracting essential oils from aromatic plant materials that uses steam to transfer the volatile oils. Because the plant materials are first immersed in water before being heated, some constituents are protected from being overheated. This process can take a significant amount of time, and damage may be incurred to some of the compounds.
