New Hydrosol!

We attempted to create this hydrosol on two occasions. The first time around we blew the still pot completely off the heat source and spent three hours cleaning up the mess. We're still finding evidence of little crumbs of the burst pot, so the cleaning hasn't officially come to an end.

The second time around we lowered the temperature on the still, and didn't fill the still up to the fill line, giving the raw materials inside plenty of room to roll around.

So what's this explosive new hydrosol? A beautiful co-distillation of Hawai'ian sandalwood (Santalum paniculatum) and Omani frankincense (Boswellia sacra). The scent is fresh and warm with deep notes of sacred temple frankincense embraced by sweet woody notes of sandalwood. It's really a one-of-a-kind creation, and possibly the only time we make it here in our stillroom.
