Can you make mint and citrus extracts by juicing and dehydrating?

eco-peruMarch 19, 2014

I couldn't find any resources online but I want to make "raw" mint and citrus essential oils by juicing the mint and peels first than dehydrating it in my excalibur at 105-110 degrees fht, does anybody know if this would work well?

I have also wanted to make citrus extracts so I'm glad you posted. Maybe you will have to invest in a still?

I'm really into raw food so wondering why you want raw mint and citrus extract.

Would this work for you? Not raw but not heated.
