A Hydrosol (also known as flower water) is the scented water produced in the steam distillation of a particular plant. Hydrosols contain minute suspensions of essential oils and water-soluble components obtained through distillation of plants during the essential oil making process. They contain many of the properties of essential oils but in a gentler form.
Uses of hydrosols:
Facial toner or mist spray
Air and fabric freshener
Cooling and anti-inflammatory spray
Soothing spray for sunburn, rashes and insect bites
Natural Wet Wipe
They are an excellent alternative to essential oils in an aqueous product or when needing a very gentle alternative.
