Hydrosols

Hydrosols are also known as hydrolats or steam distillates. They are 100% non-alcoholic waters that are drawn straight from the aromatherapy still. They are a true product of distillation and cannot be manufactured synthetically.

A hydrosol"s properties are similar to those of its corresponding essential oil. The difference is that hydrosols are much less concentrated, and they are missing the terpene hydrocarbon. This makes them very tolerable, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic substances. Hydrosols can be used in creams, lotions, compresses, facial misters, body sprays and other recipes. They are great for skin that has seen too much sun as well as for rashes and burns. Hydrosols are soothing and antiseptic. They are gentle enough to be used on children, pets, and the elderly, where essential oils may be too powerful. 100% natural, no additives. We recommend keeping your hydrosols in the fridge to extend their shelf life.
