Hydrosols

“Hydrosols are the condensate water co-produced during the steam or hydro-distillation 
of plant material for therapeutic purposes.” - Suzanne Catty

For this reason, hydrosols are sometimes referred to as floral waters, distillates or hydrolats. As far back as the 11th century, plant material was distilled expressly for the hydrosols they produced; essential oils were considered the by-product and often tossed aside. Hydrosols were most in use during the 18th century in Europe. Due to the high volume of hydrosol that was produced, new uses for the essential oils were researched. Through this research, essential oils became more valuable. Today, essential oils are much more common therapeutically than hydrosols, but many feel that hydrosols are an invaluable tool for practical applications in daily life.

Our hydrosols are 100% pure distillate water from the extraction process and free of any additives. Many other products on the market are merely water, essential oil, and an emulsifier. Other brands may even have the additions of vegetable glycerin, PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil, potassium sorbate, citric acid, dimethicone defoamer, and are not always displayed on the label. Even in trace amounts, we consider these additions adulterations. If you are planning to use hydrosols as therapeutic healing agents you must demand pure, fresh, clean product free of anything other than the distillate water.
