Embark on a transformative journey into the realm of plant alchemy. We invite you to join us for a live hydrosol distillation workshop amidst the serene beauty of the Ojai Valley. This enchanting experience will awaken your senses, connecting you with the natural world and the alchemical process that unfolds during distillation with the elements of fire, air, metal, earth, and water.



In this workshop, distillation becomes more than just a technique; it becomes a sacred journey into the very essence of the natural world. We will guide you through this elegant process, where each step unveils a symphony of sensations that enrich your soul.

You will experience the transformational power of distillation as we explore the earth's elements: the fire that heats the still, the air that carries the essence of the plants, the earth that nurtures them, and the water that releases their hidden beauty.

You will be immersed in a sensory symphony as you touch, smell, watch and listen to the intricate dance of plant and steam. You will taste the essence of the hydrosol as it emerges from the copper still, an invitation to go deeper with the plant spirit.

You will discover the magic of medicinal plants as we tour the garden and discuss their profound influence on various facets of our being. Each plant possesses its own unique story, and we will explore both the scientific and energetic threads that weave together to create a deep connection with each plant.

Your day will culminate in sampling our handcrafted products and taking home a bottle of your own crafted hydrosol, a fragrant embodiment of the day's journey.
