What you will do

In this workshop, you will be introduced to the process of citrus distillation. We'll explore the process of transforming everyday citrus peels into fragrant essential oils. Participants are encouraged to bring their own materials according to their inspiration. First, we'll pamper ourselves with a refreshing steamed citrus face bath. After learning about different distilling techniques, you'll get hands-on experience combining raw citrus materials and eventually extracting their essence. By the end, you'll take home a tiny bottle of your very own 10% citrus essential oil solution in alcohol.
