    Observation to find out the influence of the raw materials and extraction method on recovery and quality of galanga oil was conducted at Processing Laboratory of Research lnstitute for Industry and Trade. Palembans. Treatments applied were fresh rhizome and dried rhizome and length distillation consisted of 4, 6,8, and l0 hours and exctraction by using etanol solvent. Blocking randomized design arranged factorially was used 3 replications. This research was aimed to increase the recovery and quality of galanga oil. Observations were done on the yield of galanga oil, and chemical composition. The result showed that the optimum distillation condition was 8 hours distillation. Such distillation condition produced 0,748% oii yield with the characterictics as follow : spesific gravity 0.9518, refractive index 1.4801, acid nurnber 1.42l, ester number 86.017, and total chemicals component content of 22,62 %. This feasibility was indicated by positive NPV, its Net BC ratio value which was higher than that unity (3,1) and BEP 10,8 first years. Futhermore, the result of this study can be used an appropriated effective method of galanga oil extraction method
