Join Dr Sally Gouldstone founder of Seilich Botanicals. A botanist with a passion for all things wild.  She has worked in nature conservation for 20 years and is currently based at the Royal Botanic Garden in Edinburgh where she endeavours to save rare Scottish plant species from extinction.  

What exactly are essential oils and floral waters and how are they made?  During this workshop participants will have the chance to learn the ancient art of essential oil distillation; using traditional copper stills, live distillations will be used to capture the spirit of our own native wild flowers that have been collected from around Wilderness festival (see the Foraging for Aromatic Plants workshop).  Participants will come away with their very own Wilderness Festival floral water, distilled on site from flowers/herbs found within the grounds. Participants may join this class alone or book into the whole set of classes: Foraging for Aromatic Plants, Distilling Floral Waters and Essential Oils, and Make Your Own Cosmetics.
