Hi!! Glad you are excited, lol...Ok, this is directly from the book The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy, by Valerie Ann Worwood (awesome book by the way)
"Here is a method of making essential oils and fine floral or herb waters at the same time. You will need a large, enamel kettle-you can find these in Chinese emporiums-about five feet of plastic hose to fit the spout. Fill the kettle with the flower or herb you wish to distill and then pour in as much bottled water as it can hold. Put a low table next to the stove-it should be a little less than half the height of the stove-and put a bowl filled with ice. Finally, place a jug on the floor, near the table. Now bend the hose so that the bend rests in the ice, and put the end of the hose into the jug on the floor.
Boil the kettle and then turn down the heat so that it stews but doesn't quite simmer and leave it for an hour or so. The steam leaving the kettle spout will contain molecules of essential oil, this will cool in the ice, and the water that drips into the jug on the floor will contain particles of essential oil along with water particles. When the process has finished, the essential oil will float to the top of the water in the jug. Allow a little time for this to happen, and then use an eye dropper to take it off carefully. These droppers are available from pharmacists, or use the dropper from a new dropper-bottle, also available from any pharmacist for a few cents. The liquid remaining in the jug will be a fine flower or herb water."
Sounds simple enough eh? I wonder what kind of kettle she is talking about? Like a large tea kettle?
