The main purpose of soxhlet extraction is to extract even "the last few molecules" of aromatic and essential oil compound from botanicals and to extract compounds that is normally very difficult to extract or has very low yields. - It even extracts the magical aroma compounds from Myrrh and Frankincense resin (think "tree gum" extractions).

For Soxhlet extractions you would need about 300ml pure ethanol or 600ml of vodka as solvent.

Once you have extracted the aromatic compounds, you may wish te separate them from the ethanol used as solvent (or hexane or other solvents). for this you may use the simple essential oil extraction kit to recoverthe ethanol from the extract.
