Rinsing Dry Botanicals...?

Recommended Posts

Simple question - how should I handle dry botanicals before distillation to rid them of dust?

Or should I assume they are never 'distilled over'? Just thinking they surely must contain dirt or dust and I'm wondering if this is safe to put into my pot. Thanks.

No dirt/dust will come over in the distillate. The only things in the distillate will be volatiles that have boiling points near or less than water.

Just find a sieve/screen that is small enough to permit the dust/bits to fall out, but not the botanicals.

Don't bother rinsing, it'll be a mess.
