Over the years, with natural curiosity and inherent need for purity, I have imperceptibly delved myself into the process of understanding the beautiful nature of essential oils and aromatic waters, and the process of making them.

Distillation is an age-old extraction method using water and/or steam to transform aromatic plants into essential oils and aromatic waters. The vessels and techniques that have been applied around the world are amazingly versatile. Yet, the most traditional instrument that symbolises the union of the trade is the beautiful copper alembic still composed by a spherical retort, an onion-shaped top with a long spiral pipe going into a condenser. That’s definitely a place where magic happens. Alchemical changes.

DISTILLING FOR HYDROSOLS

My distillations are carried out with a traditional copper still, in small batches within a slow and artisanal setup. From my own inner need of high quality & care, I am using pure ingredients, either organic (by nature of source and not necessarily by authority stamps) or wild crafted. Each and every distillation is a new journey, a contemplation, an experiment and exploration finding bridges between the Spirit of Plant Kingdom and the Soul of our Human Nature.
