Distillates: The Water Of Aromatherapy
July 17 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
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.
