Learn to Make Your Own Hydrosols May 13
The Flora & Flavors of Montalvo

Join us on Saturday, May 13 from 10am-5pm for an all-day workshop where you will learn everything you need to know about distilling essential oils into therapeutic hydrosols: The Flora and Flavors of Montalvo

Hydrosols are the by-products of essential oils which have a variety of uses in culinary, medicinal, and cosmetic applications. They even work with mood and emotions, calming the mind and soothing fatigue.

This workshop, led by ethno-botanist Alice Encinas Duvernell and Montalvo Culinary Artist Andrea Blum, will teach you to craft your own hydrosols from scratch using plants from the grounds. You will experiment in aromatherapy and learn to flavor with food with aroma honeys and essential oils. Plus, bring home an 8-ounce bottle of freshly distilled hydrosol and all the skills to get started on your own distilling adventures!

Note: Please bring a notepad, sun hat, sunscreen, and comfortable walking shoes. There will be an hour lunch break; please bring your own brown bag lunch. We will provide snacks, water and tea throughout the day.

Registration for the full day is $170 and includes all necessary materials. Sign up through the button below or call our Box Office at 408-961-5858 (Monday-Friday, 10am-4pm).
