I had a spare hour to get into the lab with John and filter the results of the month long distillation of the oak leaves for the heart of Glendale in the tree. It turned out to have a quite musty scent, once I could get past the strong alcohol smell. We set it up to filter, then turned our attention to the distilled sage brush from the desert outside Las Vegas, which has been waiting for attention for a long time. To separate the essential oil of the sage from the alcohol in which it was refluxed we ran it through this splendid machine with the help of two of John’s students – my thanks to Lindsay Lawrence and Jen Norman!
