Hydrosols (Flower Waters)
Hydrosols, also known as floral waters, hydroflorates, flower waters or distillates are produced from steam-distilling plant materials. Hydrosols have similar properties to essential oils but are much less concentrated. Unlike their "essential oil added to water" counterparts, true steam-distilled hydrosols contain all the beneficial components that whole plant materials have to offer.
Hydrosols are usually a by-product of essential oil production, but the highest quality comes from devoted distillers who, with artist-like precision, steam small batches of fresh floral and plant material strictly to produce hydrosol (the hydrosols offered by Mountain Rose Herbs are produced in this fashion). Most of our hydrosols are distilled in copper stills, (a few in stainless steel stills) and processed through certified organic methods in the Pacific Northwest and Europe. Hydrosols contain all of the essence of the plant in every drop, just like essential oils but in a milder form; making them suitable for all manner of applications where essential oils would be too strong. In most hydrosols there is less than 5% actual oil.
Please note that their aromas are mostly mild and subtle, sometimes bright and fragrant, and most hydrosols have an herby or grassy note indicative of their authentic and therapeutic properties.
Wonderful as a facial splash, body perfume, deodorant or air freshener. Cool a hot flash, change your mood, or add them to lotions and creams. Hydrosols should be kept in a cool, dark place, and refrigeration is recommended unless you will use them within a short time.
C.H.I. Pure Beauty Facelift Moisturizers contain Rose and Witch Hazel Hydrosols (alcohol free unlike the drugstore variety).
Artisan Organic Lemon Balm and Clary Sage Hydrosol are available seasonally at Core Health Institute.
A host of Delightful Hydrosols are also available online from Mountain Rose Herbs.
