What are Hydrosols?
A hydrosol is the condensate water that is left over after the process of extracting an essential oil by water or steam distillation. This aromatic water contains the very essence of everything that was contained within the plant when it was still alive and growing.
When essential oils are extracted by steam distillation, some of the aromatic and healing principles held within the plant are not captured during the process. These important components do not escape into another dimension or disappear into a black hole, fortunately they are absorbed by the steam or water that is used to extract the oil.
This steam eventually condenses back into water, and now contains small quantities of essential oil plus many of the water-soluble (hydrophilic) parts of the plant. Now supercharged with more active principles than the essential oil from the plant, this ready to use product offers a safe and convenient way to deliver a wide range of therapeutic and cosmetic benefits.
- Lavandula Angustifolia
- Origin: France
One of the many benefits of Lavander is a more consistent aroma from batch to batch. In comparison to lavender essential oil, this hydrosol has a much grassier aroma with a sweet floral top note typical of Lavander. It is ideal for oily and combination skin. Mentally refreshing and marvelous on the emotions!
Suitable for cosmetic use.
Beware of the term ''Floral waters''
Sometimes water simply blended with essential oils are sold as floral waters or improperly classified as hydrosols. It is always wise to ask vendors for details about the hydrosols that they sell to ensure that what you are purchasing is a true hydrosol as defined here.
