The Art of Distillation

The Art of Distillation

Distillation is an ancient alchemical practice in which we can collect, savor, and utilize the plant spirit energies surrounding us. In this class you will learn how to distill plants into a hydrosol through a copper alembic still. Hydrosols are pure plant waters; a combination of the plants essential oil and its water. These waters have been used for centuries to bring plant energetics into our spirits and our skin. We will explore Astro-herbology; how the moon and stars influence our practice, as well as wildcrafting and sustainable harvesting. Each student will leave class with a 2 oz bottle of hydrosol from our distillation. There will be a $5 materials fee.

The Art of Distillation will be shared by Elli Sunshine.
