Description & Extraction:
It is a wild growing, herbaceous green and straw-colored grass, with long
slender stems, terminal flowering tops and fragrant grassy leaves. It is
harvested before the flowers appear and the highest yield is obtained when
the grass is fully dried - about one week after it has been cut. There are
two varieties of grass from which the oil can be extracted - motia and
sofia. We find the sofia chemotype to be far more active and pleasant
smelling - and for this reason the oil sold by us is from this chemotype.
