I have several large established lavenders in my garden. I always try to recycle cuttings to create compost or cuttings. However, I thought that this spring, I might try to make some Lavender oil out of the prunings.Can the average gardener extract the oil easily and if so how?

The essential oil is extracted by distillation so it is rather impractical to do at home, unfortunately.
