I am processing my oil by cold press. I have to dry it first. I have three challenges:

  1. The color of my oil is darker than intended.
  2. My oil has a very strong smell.
  3. I am seeking a cheaper and faster method for drying.

The dark oil is not appealing. Therefore I am seeking advice on how to achieve an appealing color. Also, are there alternative, natural scents that I can add to defuse the strong scent or remove it altogether? Lastly, any advice on a faster and cheaper drying methods?

  • Currently after skinning and removing the pit, I dry the flesh under the sun, the process takes 6 - 14 days. I process the dried material through a cold press system. – God'sfriend Sep 13 '15 at 5:12
