You can see the full recipe for this Chamomile Hydrosol here.
For ingredients you’ll need:
- 1 cup of dried organic chamomile flowers
- 2 cups of distilled water
- Ice cubes
- 100 ml clear glass bottle for storage
- Combine 1 cup of dry chamomile flowers and 2 cups of distilled water in a pot.
- Set up a vegetable steamer or strainer over the pot. Place a small heat-resistant bowl on top to collect the hydrosol.
- Seal the pot with an upside-down lid without steam holes. Choose a larger lid to cover the pot.
- Add ice on top of the upside-down lid. Replace the ice as it melts. Using ice bags on the lid can prevent spills. If using ice cubes directly, keep a turkey baster nearby to remove pooled water.
- Place the DIY distiller on low-medium heat on the stove for 20–25 min. As the chamomile water evaporates, the steam will rise and condense on the cold lid, turning back into a liquid. The liquid drops will fall into the center and collect in your bowl, creating your precious hydrosol.
- Pour the chamomile hydrosol into a glass spray bottle, and keep the hydrosol in the refrigerator. The shelf life of hydrosols can vary depending on the type of hydrosol and storage conditions. In general, if properly stored in the refrigerator, hydrosols can last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years.
