Hydrosols are among the gentlest and safest aromatics for use in caring for your complexion. We use them as toners, refreshing “spritzers” during the day to revive your make-up and your spirit, soothing and calming anti-inflammatories to ease the redness of rosacea or sunburn, or gentle anti-bacterials to help calm troubled skin and acne. Use your favourite organic hydrosol as the water portion of a simple clay mask, or to remove a mask.
Hydrosols or herbal distillates are the bi-product of distillation when plants are steam-distilled to release their essential oil. Hydrosol simply means, hydro or water and sol or solution, that is, the water solution that contains some of the water-soluble micro-molecules of essential oil as well as water-soluble plant components. These micro-molecules of essential oil give the hydrosol its scent and the plant components give the hydrosol its herbal or floral therapy.
This delightful hydrosol has an uplifting bitter-sweet citrusy floral aroma and is also very calming and grounding. It has a gender neutral aroma making it a great hydrosol for the whole family. Used as a staple throughout the perfume industry, this astringent hydrosol also makes a wonderful toner or aftershave.
Remember that hydrosols are not just misters, water to which essential oils have been added. Hydrosols are a unique product, a true part of distillation and cannot be manufactured synthetically. The micro-drops of essential oil are left intact in the hydrosol. They are used 100% pure as they come out of the still with a strong taste, strong scent and a perfect acid balance of 5.5 –to match human skin.
