Make it yourself
Take a pot with a few holes in the bottom. Pass thin wires through these and bend them so that they converge at a point a few inches away from the base. Suitably secure the upper ends. Fill with shell pieces and seal the top. Prepare oil by destructive distillation by placing a collecting vessel in the centre of a pit and supporting the pot on it and applying heat only to the pot by heaping and igniting cow dung cakes arranged around and above the pot.
