Hydrosols

Hydrosols are the water by-product of the essential oil distillation process. During steam distillation, water is used to extract the essential oils from the plant material. The essential oils are then concentrated in a condenser and separated from the water, leaving behind what is known as the hydrosol, sometimes also called floral water or hydrolats.

According to the National Association of Holistic Aromatherapy: "Hydrosols are the aqueous product of distillation and carry the hydrophilic properties (water-soluble components) of the plant in solution as well as microscopic droplets of essential oils in suspension. Every liter of hydrosol contains between 0.05 and 0.2 milliliter (less then 1%, typically 0.01 - 0.04%) of dissolved essential oil, depending on the water solubility of the plant’s components and the distillation parameters."

This makes hydrosols a wonderful substitute for essential oils in many scenarios such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, and with babies & children, as well as for people looking for a water-like way to use EO's (vs in an oil).

All of our hydrosols are organic when possible.
