Hydrosols, also known as "flower waters," are produced by distilling fresh leaves, fruits, flowers, and other plant materials. With similar properties to essential oils, these aromatic waters are much less concentrated. Their aromas are often soft and subtle when compared to their essential oil counterpart. These aromatic products usually have a scent similar to their essential oil, but also can have a greener note. This comes from the water soluble constituents in the plant material that are not present in the essential oil.
All of the hydrosols I craft are produced in a traditional copper still. I use the finest ethically wildharvested or chemical/pesticide free botanicals. Hydrosols are wonderfully hydrating and a great skin prep, though I will spray it on myself throughout the day when I need a pick-me up from some "scent therapy". It is useful as a natural hair perfume or a room spray. Depending on the plant, some make wonderful air purifiers and "smokeless" smudges for clearing negative energy.
