Jeruk purut (Citrus hystricx DC) leave, as essential oil containing material, possibly has high commercial value. Proper production of jeruk purut leaves oil is determined using experimental data obtained from water distillation in pilot-palnt scale. Three alternative distillation conditions: namely chopped put into distillation chamber with 88.5 cm height, and chopped put into chamber with 59 cm height and blended put into distillation chamber with 59 cm height. These methods of extraction produced essential oil with good physical and chemical characteristics as well as having good flavor balance. Theoretically, sliced jeruk purut leaves extracted in distillation chamber at 1,22 m height produced optimal result in pilot plant scale was rendemen of 3.02%.
