How many ways to distill roses?

First, there are generally pertinent to roses good distillation practices... the tried and true.

This year I’ve gone further than proficiency with roses’ requirements, 
doing 7 major distillations, all of them differently approached for nuance, 
including 2 double distilled hydrosol batches. 

There’s one run inspired by the classic vintner’s practice of maturing the vendange in oak casks. 
I employed a cache bottle saturated with the scent (though of course it washed and sterilized) of a highly aromatic herb I also distill, 
rendering a green spiked rose with a fresh crispness.

Another batch of rosewater has spicy, honeyed notes. Yet another is sweet, gentle rose. 
Two co-distillations varied the proportions of rose species + rose geranium leaf. 
The latest is also a co-distillation: elderflower & damasks,marking the shift into elderflower season.

This is genuine terroir, distilling the farmscape, the weather, the flowers’ expression of the particular morning, 
the “ color” of my heart, 
and most excitingly to me, 
imprints of how the elementals are creating substance from all of this!!

Since I grow the plants.. don’t buy them 
nor buy in and blend hydrosols as most botanical skin care businesses do..
Tender Flower products are quite unique. The entire relationship I have directly with/from the Earth, nature, the plants, the artistic and spiritual science of Biodynamic cultivation, as well as personally making the plant medicine is infused with the products.
This conveys very definite vibes many customers can feel (you really are beautifully perceptive !), 
of love, devotion and healing. 

While all these personally engaged with steps limit time for marketing and standardized business protocols, they make TF offerings unique .. among the nichest of the niche.😉

I look forward to sharing these beauties and others with you soon.
