WE REGULARLY PROPOSE COURSES AND WORKSHOPS ON DISTILLATION, PLANTS AND ESSENTIAL OILS CHEMITRY AND QUALITY.
If you want a workshop in your location, we can come with the equipment to give a course and perform a distillation on site.
- OUR THREE DAYS OF COURSE/WORSHOP -
ORGANIC CHEMISTRY, PLANTS AND ESSENTIAL OILS CHEMISTRY
This course, relatively theoretical, is intended to provide you with a valuable and even indispensable knowledge base if you work with plants in phytotherapy, aromatherapy or natural products. After an introduction to the chemistry of living organisms, we will discuss the main families of molecules in plants and what we can extract or distill
DISTILLATION AND EXTRACTION OF AROMATIC AND MEDICINALE PLANTS
During this day combining practice and theory, we will distill a seasonal aromatic plant and we will make different plant extracts in order to study the impact of the extraction method (the choice of solvent) on the product obtained. The main methods of extraction and distillation will be explained and discussed.
ANALYSIS AND QUALITY OF ESSENTIAL OILS AND HYDROLATS
This day, which also combines practice and theory, aims to explain how essential oils and other natural products are analyzed in laboratory. Other tests that can be done by the participants themselves are also presented and we discuss the relatively complex notion of quality.
