So someone is getting into perfume making and wants to start distilling scents. So I knew you could use things like distillation and condensing columns along with certain flasks to accomplish Stupid me – I went and google them and the prices were astronomical.
But then it hit me – check on Amazon. Sure enough – a whole distillation kit is a whole $65. A stirrer/heater unit is half the price. So for about $200. Much better than the $500 to $1,000 I was budgeting. Amazon has in fact become the be all to end all place if you’re shopping for esoteric lab gear, electronic parts, etc. It’s amazing, but it’s Amazon.
And it can do double duty – extract scent from certain botanicals and making distilled alcohol from corn mash. Oh this will be great fun.
