Basic Plant Distillation Workshop

This is a basic show-and-tell plant distillation workshop where we will be conducting a steam or water distillation of  Utah juniper (Juniperus osteosperma) on a 30L copper still. In autumn, and depending upon availability of the plant, we might be able to do a separate or co-distillation with Broom snakeweed (Gutierrezia sarothrae), a beautiful, yellow-flowering plant indigenous to the area.

You will take part in the collection of the plant material, setting up the still, and pulling off the hydrosol. However, this is not a workshop that will give you the “technical know-how” of distillations but rather a fun day of learning and understanding how plant material is turned into hydrosol. We may even get a small quantity of essential oil!

We will begin the day around 10 am and finish around 4 pm, depending on the distillation process. Lunch is included.

What you Need to Know

Location: The Basic Plant Distillation workshop is located on a private one acre original homestead property, situated approximately five minutes outside of Sedona (West). We have a garden studio which houses our working still, and as separate room for blending and making custom blends during class and for business. Our aromatic garden surrounds the building structures (including our home) and you will be free to investigate our plants (depending upon season).

We are at the end of a private dirt road (accessible by all types of vehicles) in the quiet countryside of “original” Sedona surroundings. Full directions will be provided with your information sheet once you have paid the final balance for your workshop/retreat. We value the privacy and quiet of our surroundings, so be mindful of your interaction with residents and nature when visiting us.

What’s Included: Refreshments and lunch are provided due to our more remote location. You will also receive a custom workbook.

Continuing Education (CE Credits): Continuing education (CE) credits are available to meet National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy (NAHA) CE requirements and the Aromatherapy Registration Council (ARC) CE requirements (6 hours for each workshop).
