Hydrosols 

I think of Hydrosols as holograms of the plant.  Hydrosols contain all of the plant in every drop, just like a hologram.

~Suzanne Catty, Hydrosols: the next aromatherapy

 

What are hydrosols?  Hydrosols are the floral/herbal waters that are produced in addition to essential oils through the distillation process.  These waters are saturated with the essence of the plant just like essential oils are.  They are what remains when the oil “pops” out of the condensed steam.  Like essential oils, hydrosols have many health supporting benefits.  But they are much milder than essential oils.  Rosewater is one of the more well-known hydrosols.  For more information, please join us for one of our Intro to Hydrosols classes.
