Liziqi Copper Distiller for Making Hydrosol and Essential Oil
We have received some feedback that some people want the distiller machine in the video but do not know where to buy it. In the video, Ziqi uses the copper distiller to make hydrosol and essential oil for skin care. After using it, we confirmed that this is indeed a great distiller product especially for making hydrosols, and Ziqi has been using it to make hydrosols herself. If you want to make hydrosol by yourself, we believe this product can fulfil your wishes.
Hydrosol - A Gift From Nature
Aromatic ingredients can be extracted from the roots, leaves, flowers, fruits, seeds and other parts of various plants that the nature provides us. No smell of artificial chemical. The most common extraction method is "distillation." The different quality of the distillation equipment also affects the extractive's final quality.
Hydrosol is a by-product in the process distillation of aromatic plants for the purpose of aromatherapy (the main product is essential oil). Simply put, it is the raw liquid obtained by fusing the aromatic components of the aromatic plants and water when the aromatic plants are distilled (some essential oils are extracted from it, and some are not refined), and cannot be added or processed.
The scent of the pure natural hydrosol is a faint fragrance, with its own plant-derived scent, it smells very good without irritation.
The real hydrosol is a distilled liquid of the aromatic components of plants and water. It has the same properties as water, and it feels refreshing when applied to the skin.
About Hydrosol Skincare
The effect of herbal distillate made from different flowers is also different. You can choose suitable flowers for distillation according to your skin condition. Hydrosol can be used for skincare, haircare, eau de toilette, and other purposes. Here are some tips for the effects of some flower hydrosol.
Lavender hydrosol can adjust the secretion of skin oil, and it is very good for oily skin. It is famous for acne removal and oil control. Lavender Hydrosol contains linalool, which can promote skin cell regeneration and reduce acne marks.
Chamomile hydrosol is the first choice for sensitive skin, red bloodshot skin, and acne-prone skin. It contains a large number of ester ingredients, and the effect of desensitization, anti-inflammation, soothing, and calming the skin is particularly significant. It remedies sun-damaged skin. After sun exposure, apply chamomile hydrosol to a cotton pad to quickly soothe the skin and prevent sunburn and melanin precipitation.
Rose has the effect of promoting blood circulation and removing blood stasis. Its hydrosol has the effects of relieving itching, anti-inflammation, and delaying aging. It is a natural skincare agent that can clean, whiten, and moisturize the skin. It is the best moisturizer for dry skin. Put on the eyes, it can also improve visual acuity.
Peppermint hydrosol can promote skin cell regeneration, accelerate the healing of small wounds, regulate skin oil, clean the skin, shrink enlarged pores, and have a cooling sensation that relieves itchy and inflamed skin.
About Hydrosol Machine
This equipment is specially used to extract hydrosol (including essential oils), and it follows the style of classical hydrosol extraction equipment so that you can have 100% of the historical experience of hydrosol extraction.
Copper has good resistance to acidic substances in plants. In the process of heating and distillation, copper can form insoluble copper salts with butyric acid, caproic acid, caprylic acid, lauric acid, etc., and discharge these acids with undesirable gases to obtain purer essential oils and hydrosol. This is also the reason why ancient and traditional copper distillation equipment are still used in some countries;
The thermal conductivity of copper is more than 5 times that of iron, and it distills more quickly, making combustion more effective and reducing resource waste;
Copper is an inert metal, and its properties are very stable even under high temperature and high pressure. In comparison, iron is a relatively active solid metal substance, and is easier to chemically react with essential oils distilled from plants. This will affect the quality of essential oils and at the same time advance its expiration time.
Friendly reminder: When using for the first time, please avoid direct contact with the machine with your hands because sweat will oxidize the surface more quickly and affect its appearance. It is recommended that you wear a pair of white gloves.
1PC x Distiller Boiler, 1PC x Copper Cover, 1PC x Copper Pipe, 1PC x Condensate Bucket.
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 with water, and the part above the partition is for putting in flowers;
Place the rubber gasket, then put on the copper cover;
Connect the copper pipe, then connect the other end to the condensate bucket, tighten it;
Put the clamp around 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 of 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), so the maintenance method is suggested 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 soak a washcloth in white vinegar and apply it on the surface;
If you don't mind that the surface is not as bright as when you just received it, wipe it with a scouring pad and rinse it with water
How should I decide the ratio of water to flower materials?
- We will provide you with a list of the proportions of flowers to make hydrosol.
Can it be heated with a gas stove?
- Gas stove or induction cooker both can be used.
Do I have to buy a separator?
- If you just want to distill the hydrosol, you don’t need to buy the separator. The separator is used to separate the essential oil.
How long does it take to distill the hydrosol?
- Usually, hydrosol will be distilled out in 15-20 minutes, the specific time depends on the amount of material.
Can I use the hydrosol directly for skincare?
- Since the hydrosol is made by yourself, the raw materials are water and flowers, without any additives, you can use it directly for skincare.
Why is the distiller made of copper? Are there other materials available?
- There are some other common materials, like stainless steel and iron.
Compared with these two materials, copper distillers have much more output and higher quality of hydrosol than stainless-steel distillers. The thermal conductivity of copper is more than 5 times that of iron, and it distills more quickly, making combustion more effective and reducing resource waste.
Therefore, a copper distiller is a wise choice for distilling hydrosol.
