So say I found some sassafras albidum trees. From my understanding this is a source of safrole to make mdxx chems. Wikipedia says it's not economical to extract safrole from on a large scale but small scale can be done. Can anyone point me in the right direction with what to do with this? I know the roots and root bark require a steam distillation process to isolate the essential oils. But like, guides/tutorials on how to do this anyone? I'm sure that since there's dmt extraction teks for all sorts of plant sources, all around the web there's bound to be some for this, I just can't seem to find it

Looks like safrole is soluble in alcohol, so buying a bottle of Everclear would be a good start.

I don't know the details, but try looking up steam distillation methods for something like mint (since mint also contains alcohol-soluble aromatic compounds). The technique probably transfers to sassafras root bark.

>tfw sassafras is supposed to be native to my area but it's actually not because of the poorly-drained soil
