Discover the functioning and history of this "instrument of the Alchemists", the use of essential oils and hydrolats from the Egyptians to the present day, at the frontier of perfume, health, religious and magical rites.
We will make a distillation together: which plants, how to harvest, which properties, how to distil... You will also leave with your own bottle of hydrolat at the end.
