Workshop - All about Hydrosol

As many of you may know, we are all about Hydrosols! Hydrosols are the pure botanical waters from distilling fresh herbs. They have been made and used in skincare, cooking and personal wellness around the world for centuries; want to learn even more?!. On Saturday, October 19, from 1:00-4:00, Peter is teaming up with Theresa Cangialosi of SoBotannical Apothecary to share the basics of what it takes to harvest and distill hydrosol, and use these floral waters in a holistic skincare routine

Peter Elmore is the farmer and distiller here at Star Bright, responsible for growing and distilling all of our Star Bright Farm hydrosols. He will walk the class though a sample distillation of fresh harvested botanicals on our smaller format 10 liter copper still, exploring the nuances of touch smell and attention.

Theresa is a practicing aromatherapist, a leader in the aromatic industry for over 30 years. Her knowledge in essential oils, product development, and holistic education provide a deep love and understanding for the natural health industry. Theresa will walk us through using hydrosols, their role in skincare, and creating purposeful blends that work together.

During class, you will have the opportunity to sample through hydrosols from the 11 botanical varieties we distill here, and take a sample bottle home. After class, there will be time to shop through our farm market, with all of our farm grown and made home and wellness products.

Locally made snacks and herbal tea infusions will be available to help us keep focused during class!
