Hydro sol making

It's been an exciting and rewarding time on Forget me not Farm. Many nights lately Dean and I have stayed up late, listening to the bubble and drip, trickle and sometimes hissing  sounds. We swooned as the whole house filled with the angel breath of the first essential oil as the alembic still came up to temperature, and we bottled and preserved these first amazing essences with care. In some ways it was like staying up with a baby. The care taken, the joy in the process and the teamwork feeling. While we only separated the lavender essential oil, from the hydro sols that we completed, we have many quarts of amazing, ancient healing waters to share now.
