The ancient art of hydrosol distilling fresh flowers, leaves, roots, bark, and seeds is one that deepens our relationships with plants.

In this workshop you will discover the many ways of using hydrosols for health and wellness and acquire an understanding of the considerations that go into crafting a fresh high quality hydrosol, including living water, fresh plants and the intention that YOU bring to crafting this transformative medicine. Hydrosols are ethical and accessible alternatives to essential oils for aromatherapy; they are a safe, gentle, natural plant remedy that are a wonderful healing addition to your herbal toolbox!

Combining modern techniques with old time copper stills and sound ecological practices, hydrosols are easy to use, versatile, and so much fun to make!

Students will assist in the gathering and preparation of pine needles, bark, resin and cones for distillation as well as sample a variety of hydrosols. All participants will take home some of the hydrosol made during the workshop.

  • One half pint (8 oz) clean jar with plastic lid

We are located at the T-bone of Lincoln and Ontario, across the street from the Catholic church. As we are a working farmlet with animals and equipment, I ask that students please leave dogs and kids at home for everyone’s safety and so every student can have the luxury of learning without distraction. Please note that I will not be available to receive or respond to texts or phone calls from students on the day of class wondering where to meet, how to get there, and what to bring. All that information is provided in the course material in your student portal. Please DO call or text if you will be absent. 360-540-5651

Please be a bit early in order to take care of organizing supplies, using the restroom, etc. We begin the lessons on time and will NOT wait around for stragglers. Our motto is “We reward those who come on time, not those who slide in at the last minute or late.”

Thank you for understanding and I look forward to sharing the wisdom of the plants with you!

Althea soon!

Your beloved teacher,
Suzanne (Queen Bee) Tabert
