Essential Oil Distilling Weekend

Date: August 25-26, 2018

Location: Elderberry’s in Paonia, CO

with Eric and Amber from House of Aromatics in Boulder, Utah. Harvest, prepare and distill magical essences while connecting with the spirit and energies of the local Conifers.






Saturday and Sunday we will meet at 9:00 AM, and our days will finish at 6:00 PM. We will share a journey into the art, science and magic of essential oil distillation.

What we’ll do:

  • Gather Conifer tree branches in the forest and prepare them for distillation
  • Learn how to load the EO still and begin the distillation process
  • Distill the prepared Conifer material: Saturday we will distill a single species; Sunday we will create a “Co-distillation” of multiple species
  • Learn distiller’s terms like retort, charge, decanter, fraction, etc.
  • “Decant” essential oil
  • Learn about indications and applications of Conifer essential oils
  • Take part in a “guided inner journey” to facilitate intuitive aspects of learning from Trees and Plants
  • Journal our experiences and insights
  • Share and dialog
  • Take home essential oil and hydrosol of each distillation
