Aromatic Plant Distillation: Creating Hydrosols and Essential Oils
Join Patrick Kooyman and Colleen Emery as they take us through the unique process of distilling aromatic botanicals.
Participants will be guided through the process of aromatic distillation of essential oils and hydrosols using a traditional copper alembic still as well as glass still.
Active participants of this demonstration will gain insight on how, why and where certain plants produce and store aromatic compounds, how these compounds are best extracted and the medicinal actions and benefits of certain aromatic compounds. Participants will conclude the workshop with a better understanding of the process of extraction and safe and ethical usage of essential oils and hydrosols.
