To get enough needles and twigs of coniferous trees I had in October / November contacted the management forestry unit Langstraat / Chaam (Staatsbosbeheer). I was allowed on a small scale saplings, which arise spontaneously in places where it ultimately is not desirable, to use to distill.
The result is the 'shock' of the oil. The oil forms a greasy film on the wall of the funnel and can no longer be proper separated of the hydrosol (water layer). This was as you call it a learning moment! It was only possible to separate 1 mL in a bottle.
