Hydrosols, also known as "flower waters," are produced by distilling fresh leaves, fruits, flowers, and other plant materials. With similar therapeutic properties to essential oils, these aromatic waters are much less concentrated. Their aromas are often soft and subtle when compared to their essential oil counterpart. These aromatic products usually have a scent similar to their essential oil, but also can have a greener note. This comes from the water soluble constituents in the plant material that are not present in the essential oil.
We offer a full line of Certified Organic Hydrosols that are crafted, with love and devotion to the plant and extraction process, by artisan distillers who specialize in water and oil extraction of botanical ingredients. Often distilled by the same farmers who grew the fresh botanicals, their knowledge been passed down for generations.
