    Hello and Salams to all, we are very proud and happy to officially announce a new member to our team- @Abdullah .
    We have known abdullah for many years now initially as a customer but then developing the relationship further as he is an expert in distilling essential oils. Abdullah also has official accreditations/ certification and been involved in developing a special type of condenser.
    He has been experimenting with sandalwood and we are pleased to say we have distilled in the UK!!!
    next on the agenda is to improve our facility in Sri Lanka (new condenser and larger pot) and to go all out in assam and produce the very best we can possibly do- projects in the works are a Nagaland oil which will turn some heads and a Kalakassi oil. tickets and visa sorted so please look out for videos from next month, he should be there for a month and so will oversee the full process from soaking to final collection.
    Over to you now @Abdullah

    lol. like how samurai tosho swordsmiths use to add some of their blood to the tempering medium? :Laugh:

    alas. nothing so grand. i was chopping so quickly and the cleaver was so sharp that the slightest slip sacrificed the top two layers of skin and a little bit extra. no blood went onto the wood and everything was sterilised and finger was :constructionworker: bandaged before continuing
