Hydrosols & Distillates

Class Details

COVID UPDATE: This class will be offered in a live online interactive format.


Join us in making a hydrosol and aromatic tincture distillate. Learn how to create your own basic still from items in your own kitchen. A number of folk methods in creating stills will be explored and you will be delighted with the results.

We will tap into the world of forest and tree medicine and work with trees that can be freshly gathered this time of year. The aromatic tincture will be from regional plants in the area.

This will be a demonstration with two unique preparations for participants to take home. (Products will be available for no-contact pick-up in Albuquerque.) We will assemble and operate the stills in class and also discuss what hydrosols and essential oils are. Additionally we will explore the benefits of using hydrosols, which require lesser plant material to make a therapeutic, aromatic product.

Learn applications on how to use and make your own unique, aromatic tincture distillate, too. This is another way to deepen your experience in medicine making with a fun and hands on class on distillation.
