WHAT IS A HYDROSOL?

Hydrosols, also known as hydrolats, distillates or floral waters, are aqueous products of steam or hydrodistillation. They are liquid suspensions of essential oils, plant acids, and water-soluble compounds.

As they are naturally acidic, these aromatic waters protect and repair the skin while providing nourishment and balance. They offer a wide range of uses from skincare to aromatherapy, energetic and emotional support to full body tonics.

How is a hydrosol made?

The production of our hydrosols begins with fresh plant materials, such as aromatic herbs, flowers, or other botanicals, which are suitable to the distillation process.

During distillation, steam is passed through the plant material, causing the release of various volatile compounds, including essential oils, plant acids, and water-soluble constituents. The resulting vapor, a mixture of water and these aromatic and bioactive components, is then condensed and collected as the hydrosol. 

If you are interested in learning how to make your own hydrosols, we host live distillation workshops seasonally. Sign up for our newsletter here to stay up to date on our workshop offerings.

How do I use my hydrosol in the kitchen?

While hydrosols are primarily known for their external uses and aromatic benefits today, they were originally prescribed as daily tonics in many ancient herbal traditions.

Many hydrosols are not only medicinal but also delicious and aromatic, boasting subtle, natural flavors that can be an enticing addition to water. Incorporating hydrosols into mocktails provides a delightful and refreshing beverage, enhancing hydration while offering a unique and alcohol-free experience. 

It is crucial to emphasize that not all hydrosols are safe for internal use, and it is wise to consult with a knowledgeable herbalist or healthcare practitioner to ensure safety and effectiveness.
