Lavender

After getting home from a 3 week vacation I was a little late on picking my lavender but still ended with some nice fragrance. I believe I will leave my final product as an hydrosol. Below are a few pictures of my run.

Good pics of your set-up...any idea what your yield is per lb ?
I'll just sit quietly in the corner over here, with a tall glass of something special.

I filled 8 small bottles around 200 ml full all smell of lavender but only 2 of the bottles are really strong with the oil look so I put those two in the fridge to see if they separate.
