Distilling Coriander in a Copper Alembic

In this video I am sharing with you something I have been dreaming about for years, but just started to do recently: distillation! I am using a copper alembic from Candles & Supplies to distill my own hydrosols from herbs, flowers and botanicals that we either grow locally or harvest wild from the Magdalen Islands. Here is where I bought my Copper Alembic : http://www.candlesandsupplies.net/

    Ariane thank you for sharing this very informative video. I have all of my supplies and am currently reading Harvest To Hydrosol which I had to search high and low to find. I’m curious what size Alembic are you using?

  30. Nirmal Bhalla on April 19, 2021 at 2:32 am

    I need your help as I need to take the extract of 10 kg Rose flower. Thus can you please let me know what amount of water and what time it would be needed with temperature to take out the extract and also please tell me how much rose water would be extracted.
    Thanks and regards,
    N.k. Bhalla

  31. William Okrasinski on April 19, 2021 at 2:32 am

    Thanks for taking the time to not only work your Alembic, but to also film & edit the process. Can this device also be used to make essential oil with a careful process of secondary separating ?

  32. Joanne Carroll on April 19, 2021 at 2:32 am

    V Interesting. Also interesting how the rest of the world calls the whole plant coriander.

  33. Puglease on April 19, 2021 at 2:32 am

    Do you have any recommendations for a scale? Thank you for the video!

  34. S Maksymiv on April 19, 2021 at 2:34 am

    Those stills work … but they require so much plant base to fill the steamer … opted for a triclamp setup. And use an inline strainer as chamber for plant ready to steam … just for home use thou .

  35. Flash Thompson on April 19, 2021 at 2:37 am

    Bless you

  36. Mary Isokpehi on April 19, 2021 at 2:38 am

  42. Marcin Cupial on April 19, 2021 at 2:43 am

  43. The Shifting on April 19, 2021 at 2:43 am
