Distilling workshops are designed for those who love essential oils and hydrosols and would like to know more about them and how they are extracted. We offer two types of workshops but in both, we will go through the whole process together from harvesting to turning off the still. One-day workshops for fun, and two-day workshops for those serious about distilling themselves at home. The focus can be aligned with individual interests. This is an immersion into the fine art of producing essential oils and hydrosols. You will gain an appetite for the magic revealed in working with aromatic plants and appreciate the art and science involved.
One-day distilling workshop
An immersive experience on the rosemary farm in South Gippsland (Victoria). This includes an aroma meditation, an introduction to what essential oils and hydrosols are, and the different ways they are produced. The day includes lunch, tea coffee etc. At the end of the day, you will feel relaxed and rejuvenated. You will go home with new knowledge about producing, using, and 'smelling' essential oils and hydrosol and oil you have produced.

Two-day intensive - learn to distill
The intricacies of distilling, for those interested in learning to distill for themselves. These workshops are for one or two people maximum. It is a full two-day course (10am - 5pm) and can be done on two consecutive days or two separate days to suit. These workshops can be customised to suit personal interests. You will take home products from your distillations, notes about types of stills, suppliers, regulations, packaging, storage, and much more. The focus is on sharing the knowledge and experience I have gained, to enable you to create your own setup and distill. The idea is to tailor these to your needs. There is the option for follow-up engagement with me should that be helpful.
10am-5pm each day
$750/individual or $600 each for two
