Teleseminar – March 18, 2015
Presenter: Eric Scott Bresselsmith
Topic: Essential Oil: Artisan Distiller’s Perspective
Eric Scott will talk about the origins of alchemy, chemistry in relationship to pharmaceuticals, natural and artificial fragrance/flavor, how compounds are isolated and ultimately become free radicals. Connection of plant distillates to the essential intelligence/spirit of the plant available as the “Genie in the Bottle”. Value of domestic/regional distillation. Hand processing charge vs. machine – wild crafted vs. cultivated. Conifer’s as one of the ancient colonizers of the planet that have survived all major extinctions, their wide range of indications and applications. Co-distillations of plants living together in symbiotic intention bringing this aspect to the essential oil.
Meet Eric Scott Bresselsmith
I began pursuing wholistic/sustainable lifestyle in 1988 at age 22 on a certified organic farm/meditation center. When I was 27 my wife became pregnant and I was determined to care for all of my families health needs. I began pouring over books on herbalism, homeopathy and nutrition. Throughout these years each time I encountered essential oils, I intuitively pulled back knowing these bottles contained potency that required knowledge before opening. Upon meeting an aromatherapist in 2004, I felt the assurance that time had come for me to begin my journey with these “Genies in the Bottle”. After spending thousands of dollars on essential oils from around the world, I came back to the nagging of herbalism’s second rule “the medicine you need is always just a few steps away.” I knew being able to create essential oils myself would be beneficial on many levels. In 2008 I invested in a 50 gallon unit not knowing a lick about distillation or chemistry. I’m not certified in anything, have taken a few aromatherapy courses, but have loads of hands on, practical experience. Passion for wellness and health of my fellow human beings is one of my many drives.
