“This class really gave me what I was looking for. I had always wanted to learn how to distill and use hydrosols but did not know how to start. The class is jam-packed with information, which is explained in a very comprehensive way. I found all the information I needed to be able to safely buy the right still and set it up. I go back to the course regularly as my main resource for working with and making hydrosols.”
“I have been distilling for many years. I learnt this beautiful and ancient craft art whilst training to be a herbalist in France and have never looked back. I have explored the use of hydrosols in therapeutic settings, skin care, animal health cooking and even agriculture. Their energetics, subtle qualities and the way they resonate with the soul of the plant remain my preferred way of working with these precious plant medicines.”
