Hydrosols are the pure and natural waters produced during the steam distillation of essential oils from plant materials such as leaves, flowers, peels, berries, wood, stems and roots.
Much gentler than their essential oil counterparts and unlike most essential oils that should be diluted before using them on your skin, hydrosols can be applied directly on the skin. They are generally safe for all ages, those with sensitive skin and even pets.
Each hydrosol has its own unique benefits. They can be used as a mild facial toner or cleanser, a hair and scalp tonic or an aromatic mist.
They can be added to baths or used to make clay masks. You can create your own special facial moisturizer by adding a spritz of hydrosol after applying facial oil.
