In the video, they made the hydrosol a slightly different way, using a bowl elevated on a brick or a large stone. However, they also mentioned that you could use a steamer basket insert in a pot. This is the method I used and will discuss in this blog.
You will need:
- Some type of dried plant material some examples include calendula flowers, rosemary, lavender, rose petals(I used lavender)
- A medium to large sized pot with elevated steamer basket(one that does not fill the entire pot) and a lid
- distilled water
- bags of ice cubes
