Distillation Intensive


When: May 5th from 6PM-8PM; May 6th and 7th 2023 from 10AM-5PM
Location: Fleur + Forage Herbal Studio, Kirkwood
Cost: $300  plus a material fee $20
Limited Space: 8 students

During the distillation intensive you will learn how to run a distillation with an Alquitar and Column copper stills and how to use hydrosols and essential oils in different skin and herbal preparations.

We will run a total of three different distillations over the weekend; using both fresh and dried plants so we can experience how different (and similar) they are.

Students will help harvest and process the fresh plant materials and set-up the stills.

With the finished hydrosols and essential oils we will make a face cream, a flower essence and set-up a tincture. The students will take home a 15mL spritzer of each hydrosols, a 2oz jar of face cream, and a 5mL bottle of flower essence.
