Great article. I tried my hand at distilling last year (with my little makeshift distilling thingy lol) and got the best smelling lemon balm hydrosol.

Oh gosh is was just a little stovetop contraption that I read about on the 'net. The instructions were to use a large pot (I have a canning pot), put a brink in it, place a bowl on the brick, add the herbs & water, invert the lid, bring to a boil, lower the heat and simmer, while adding ice to the lid. It was really time consuming lol.
