Hydrosols

Hydrosols are also known as floral waters or distillates and are the aromatic waters co-produced during the steam distillation of essential oils (the non-water soluble, volatile aromatic compounds). A steam distilled hydrosol, unlike an essential oil added to water, contains all the beneficial components that the whole plant material has to offer. They are much milder than essential oils since they contain only a very small amount of the volatile oils making them suitable for many applications where essential oils would be too strong. Their aromas are subtle and fragrant, pure and beautiful, sensuous and feminine. Generally hydrosols tend to relieve irritation as they are anti-inflammatory and hydrating. Their healing properties can be utilized topically and/or internally.

All hydrosols offered are steam distilled by Aimie Skin Care in small quantities using traditional copper stills and high quality organic plants.

Hydrosols should be kept in a cool place away from sunlight and used within a few months for optimal freshness.

They do not contain alcohol or preservatives.
