Liziqi Copper Distiller for Making Hydrosol and Essential Oil
We received some feedback about people who needed a distiller in the video but didn't know where to buy one. In the video, Ziqi uses a copper distiller to create purees and oils for skincare. After using it, we confirmed that this is indeed a great distiller product specifically for making hydrosols and Ziqi has been using it to make hydrosols for herself. If you want to make your own hydrosols, we are confident that this product will meet your needs.
Hydrosol - A Gift From Nature
Nature has provided us with a variety of aromatic plants that can extract aromatic components from roots, leaves, flowers, fruits, seeds and other parts of the plant, depending on the plant. There is no artificial chemical aroma smell. The most common method of extraction is "distillation". The quality of the distillation equipment varies and affects the final quality.
In the steam or water distillation of aromatic plants, hydrosols are the by-products of the condensed water, which is used in aromatherapy (the main product is essential oil). In short, hydrosols are distillations of aromatic plants and are obtained from the aromatic components of the aromatic plants and the water melted into the raw distillate (from which some essential oils are extracted, some are not refined) and therefore cannot be added or processed.
The smell of pure natural hydrosols is a light aroma with its own botanical aroma, which is very pleasant and non-irritating to smell.
A true hydrosol is a distilled liquid of the aromatic components of plants and water. It has the same properties as water and feels refreshing when applied to the skin.
About Hydrosol SkincareThe effect of herbal fractions made from different flowers varies depending on the flower. You can choose the right flowers for distillation according to your skin condition. Purees can be used for skin care, hair care, eau de toilette, and other uses. Here are some tips on how floral hydrosols work
- Lavender hydrosol regulates the production of oil in the skin and is very useful for oily skin. It is known for acne removal and oil control. Lavender Hydrosol contains linalool, which promotes skin cell regeneration and reduces acne marks.
- Chamomile Hydrosol is the first choice for sensitive skin, red blooded skin, and acne prone skin. It contains high levels of esters, which are particularly effective in desensitizing, anti-inflammatory, soothing, and calming the skin. It can soothe sun-damaged skin. After exposure to the sun, apply Chamomile Hydrosol to cotton pads to quickly calm the skin after sunburn, avoid sun damage, and prevent melanin deposits.
- Rose has the effect of promoting blood circulation and removing blood stasis. Its hydrosol has the effects of anti-itch, anti-inflammatory, and delaying aging. It is a natural skincare agent that can clean the skin, whiten, and moisturize. It is the best moisturizer for dry skin. Put it on the eyes, it can also improve visual acuity.
- Peppermint hydrosol promotes skin cell regeneration, accelerates the healing of small wounds, regulates skin oil balance and pore size, cleanses the skin, shrinks pores and has a cooling sensation that reduces itchy and inflamed skin.
About Hydrosol MachineThe equipment is dedicated to the extraction of hydrosols (including essential oils) and follows the style of classic hydrosol extraction equipment, so you can take advantage of 100% of the historical experience of hydrosol extraction.
- Copper has good resistance to acids in plants. During heating and distillation, copper forms insoluble copper salts with butyric, capric, octanoic, and lauric acids and expels these acids together with undesired gases, thus obtaining pure essential oils and hydrosols. This is the reason why ancient and traditional copper stills are used in some countries.
- Copper has more than five times the thermal conductivity of iron and distills faster and burns more efficiently, reducing wasted resources.
- Copper is an inert metal and is very stable even at high temperatures and pressures. In contrast, iron is a relatively reactive solid metallic substance that reacts more readily with the essential oils distilled from plants chemically. This will affect the quality of the essential oil while extending its expiration date.
A gentle reminder: When using the oil for the first time, avoid direct contact with the machine with your hands, as sweat will oxidize the surface more quickly and affect its appearance. We recommend that you wear a pair of white gloves
- Distiller Part:
1PC x Distiller Boiler, 1PC x Copper Cover, 1PC x Copper Pipe, 1PC x Condensate Bucket.
- Auxiliary Part:
2PCS x Water Pipes, 1PC x Snap Clamp, 1PC x Rubber Gasket, 1PC x Copper Partition, 1PC x Water Pump.
How To Use
- Put the copper partition into the distiller, the bottom of the distiller is used for filling water, and the upper part of the partition is for putting flowers;
- Place the rubber gasket, then put on the copper cover;
- Connect the copper pipe, and connect the other end to the condensate bucket, tighten them;
- Put the clamp on the interface of the distiller, tighten it;
- Connect one end of the thin water pipe to the water pump and the other end to the lower water outlet connected to the condensate bucket;
- The thick water pipe is connected to the higher outlet;
- Put the water pump in the water first, the water pump needs to be powered;
- Adjust the temperature of the induction cooker to the maximum and prepare a container that can receive the distillate;
- the hydrosol is coming out. At this time, the induction cooker needs to be adjusted to the mid-range, then the hydrosol will be slowly released from the distiller.
How To Clean
Copper is easy to oxidize (no copper plating), suggested maintenance method as below:
- Wearing gloves when in use can effectively reduce the oxidation of the surface of the distiller;
- After each use, rinse with water and ventilate to dry in time;
- When cleaning, you can wipe it with a scouring pad and add a little detergent;
- If you want a brighter copper appearance, you can use white vinegar or lemon to wipe the surface for a while or use a washcloth to soak in white vinegar and apply it on the surface;
- If you don't mind that the surface is not as bright as the one you just received, wipe it with a scouring pad and rinse with water;
- Ancient distillation uses copper distillers and some good quality wines use copper distillers.
