content: polytrichum juniperinum - Saori collected it from the forest - teabag size 2 x 1
equipment: soxhlet 150ml
medium: ethanol 96% 225ml
Difficult to adjust to the proper heating stand because the soxhlet is apparently too big for this. If it's 1 it's too weak and if it's 2 it's too strong. The bottom of the flask got burned. The character of the extract is:
- burned/baked apple
- fish grill
Clearly it went wrong.
I tried again with the smaller soxhlet.
content: polytrichum juniperinum - Saori collected it from the forest - teabag size 2 x 3
equipment: soxhlet 100ml
medium: ethanol 96% 100ml
17:30 change the teabag
19:00 change the teabag
collected +- 40ml
character of the extract:
- brown colord
- first seaweed / wakame / nori kind of smell that makes you think of the sea
- gradually it gets warmer, then smell of the dried leaves in the forest
- later more close to oak moss or iceland moss
Very satisfactory. The concentration is also good enough for adding it to the lotion I think.
