How do you get the oil of a lemon versus the juice? Or any other fruit or flower for that matter? I guess what is the difference between an oil and a juice in the processing?

I'm pretty sure the oil comes from the rind while the juice comes from the pulp.

So how do they get oils like Jasmine oil? Is there a jasmine fruit?

Good question. I agree with response 1 and 2. I think The juice comes from the inside of the fruit, while the oil comes from the skin.

Hmm, I wonder if that is the case for all oils though, like Jasmine oil?

I agree and think that lemon oil is extracted from the lemon rind as opposed to the juice which comes from the fruit itself. There has to be some flavoring in the rind or else so many cooks wouldn't throw zest into their recipes.

So now I guess the question would be: how to actually make it?

That's a good question... this is more of an educated guess than a real answer. I think the juice is the watery part you can "squeeze out" while the oil is what you would get if you pressed the skin/left-over pulp. It probably wouldn't be sticky like the juice, and is more of the residue or "essence" left over from pressing/compressing the "vegetation" part of a plant. I hope that made sense...I'm having a "wordy" day!

I'm sorry but I don't understand what you are trying to express. Can you re-phrase it?
