I have prepared a herbal oil by heating coconut oil with a set of local herbs for quite a good amount of time. The mixture at last, consists of solid and liquid. Solid particles are burnt left overs of the herbs. Liquid is the herbal oil, which will be stored in separate containers for daily use. Upon squeezing the solid particles, the small quantity of absorbed liquid, is extracted. Manually doing this is a bit tedious as the end result might not be a 100% extraction.
Tries I already made: I used a cotton cloth to squeeze the mixture. It gave me some output, but not full. Along with, I lost some quantity of oil which sticks onto my hand and cotton cloth.
Please note: This is a home preparation, for ourselves. Quantity of prepared mixture is very much less. So please do not suggest machineries that is available in the market.
Is there a hack to extract the liquid with less manual work and less loss?
Could anyone share some idea?
