Hydrosol Distillation Class
May 20 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm| $55.00
Hydrosols are a delightful part of the world of aromatherapy! Join me for an introductory class on distilling hydrosols. In this 4-hour class participants will explore the process of distillation from preparation of the still and botanicals through to collecting the hydrosol and, in some cases, the essential oil. Using a pyrex glass still allows participants to see the entire distillation process as the steam travels up through the botanical material and returns to its liquid state via the dual-chambered condensing tube.
Class fee is $55 and includes the textbook ‘Aromatic Waters’, and a 2 ounce bottle of hydrosol to take home. We’ll formulate with hydrosols during various phases of distillation and enjoy a potluck lunch. After lunch we’ll enjoy an aromatic dessert flavored with a hydrosol.
Registration is limited to six (6) participants to ensure hands-on time for everyone. Cancellations are accepted fourteen (14) days before class. In the event the instructor has to cancel refunds will be given within fourteen (14) days.
