Squeeze it in a press or between rollers (like a laundry wringer)?

Doesn't oil float on top of juice, so that you could simply skim it off?

Does the juice nullify the effect of the oil? If not, why worry about separating them?

Is the oil in the skin of the fruit or the nuts/seeds inside?

Here a link on How to make essential oils. with more links down the page.

Also a lot of oils are toxic to people and animals. Here a link to IFRA International Fragrance Association for more info.

That is really a cool site. While I'm buying glassware, I can get a psychic reading at the same time!

Wow you're right! It's a shop for Harry Potter.

It kinda baffles me to see people selling 'ghost hunting' equipment, when they never give instructions why you are hunting em, or what to do if you find one.... Guess I'd have to resort to my favourite spell.... "RI - DI- CU- LOUS!"

Hm. This thread actually resulted in a successful, uncontroversial conclusion for the OP. How rare. How nice!
