Distillates

Hydrosols -- or Distillates as they are often called -- are the natural "plant waters" or "floral waters" that are produced during steam distillation or hydro-distillation. Hydrosols are wonderful in natural skin care products and can also be used in aromatherapy. To be classified as a distillate or as a hydrosol, these "plant waters" MUST be distilled from botanical material. In the recent past, distillate water was considered the by-product of essential oil production and was discarded. More recently, these pure distillate waters - also called hydrosols - have been recognized for their own inherent characteristics and qualities. Hydrosols typically represent the water-soluble constituents of the botanical with some volatile components such as the essential oils. Depending on the botanical and the season harvested, our hydrosols contain varying amounts of essential oil.

We source for only the best quality and organically grown plants. The hydrosols we have are distilled for the sole purpose of obtaining a quality distillate or hydrosol and are not a by-product of essential oil production. Both hydro-distillation and steam distillation technique are used to obtain our high quality hydrosols or distillates.

The Hydrosols are available on a seasonal and limited basis. The Hydrosols are for external use only.

Hydrosols and distillates can be used directly on skin unless otherwise specified. They are excellent as facial toners.

Each of these Floral Waters can be added to a bath, added to the manufacturing process in place of normal water, used as a deodorant, facial spritzer, for direct application to the skin, as a cooling agent, in saunas, in hair care applications, as a fragrance or for massage.
