Full Course Description: 

Have you used essential oils? Join us as we make them from raw plant materials! We will distill essential oils using two different methods: using a still and using equipment you likely have in your home. While the distillations are bubbling away, we’ll have a cup of tea and discuss essential oil safety, do an introduction to hydrosols (which are made alongside the essential oils), explore some great essential oil & hydrosol resources. You’ll go home with a pre-diluted essential oil roller and bottle of hydrosol. Optionally, you can stick around for a separate afternoon session where we’ll be using the remaining hydrosols and essential oils while making cold-process soap. Please be sure to register in advance for both sessions, and bring a lunch!
