Distilling Hydrosols (Video) 

Join Mother Earth Living’s Editor-in-Chief, Hannah Kincaid, as she explains the basic setup instructions and distillation tips for making steam-distilled hydrosols. Rose water and witch hazel are the two most commonly recognized hydrosols on the market today, but these decadent floral waters can be made from a wide array of fresh plant material, including peppermint, cedar, sage, chamomile, and even non-aromatic plants, such as plantain, nettle, and yarrow. Use the finished hydrosol in homemade body care products or incorporate them into sauces, simple syrups, pastries, cocktails, and other edible treats.
