new workshop series “A distillation class with hydrosols”


Workshop Programme: A distillation class with hydrosols

A Hydrosol is a herbal distillate that contains both micro-droplets of a plant’s essential oils and its water-soluble components. This watery substance is fragrant and usually (but not always) clear. Witch hazel, rosewater and lavender water; used to treat skin conditions, are the most commonly known Hydrosols.
