Aromatherapists use essential oils which are, by definition, obtained via water or steam distillation. Distilling aromatic plant material with water gives us two gifts: an essential oil and a distillate (hydrosol). Hydrosols are the forever changed and therapeutic waters obtained through the distillation process. You may have heard of and already use rose water or orange blossom water—these are distillates and have been used for centuries for their gentle therapy.
Hydrosols may be made from aromatic and non-aromatic plants. This gives us a bridge between aromatherapy (using aromatics, specifically their essential oils) and herbalism (using aromatic and non-aromatic plants). Incorporating hydrosols into your life further expands your access to phyto-therapy.
Look forward to learning:
- A high-level overview of the distillation process
- A brief history of distillation and the aromatic waters
- Benefits of using hydrosols
- How to incorporate the hydrosols into your life/practice
- Experience—taste, smell, feel—a selection of hydrosols
Create your own blend of hydrosols to take home with you in a spray bottle. Leave the workshop feeling refreshed by the plant waters and with an expanded perspective on plant-therapy!
