What are hydrosols?
Hydrosols are produced by distilling organic or wild-crafted fresh and dried plant materials into therapeutic and aromatic waters. All of our hydrosols that we make in-house are true hydrosols that result from the long and slow traditional distillation process using an alembic copper distiller from Portugal that is lead-free.
During the distillation, we do not separate the essential oils from the final product, so you can be assured that these hydrosol contain the full potency of the plant. We prefer to use fresh plant material as this allows us to capture not just all the volatile components of the plant, but more importantly, the cellular water from the living plant. This cellular water is usually lost under the conventional high pressurized steam runs for essential oils, or absent when using only dried plant material. It is this cellular water, imbued with nutritious minerals, phytosterols, antioxidants, and countless other natural botanical chemicals, that imparts our hydrosols with the water-soluble aromatic and therapeutic properties of the plant.
