What is a hydrosol?
The plant matter used in the distillation processimparts the hydrosol with the water-soluble aromatic and therapeutic properties of the plant. Unlike essential oils that should be diluted prior to application to the skin, hydrosols are much gentler than their essential oil counterparts and can generally be used directly on the skin without further dilution.

Hydrosol water is “the essence of plant life in a bottle”. For instance, if I wanted to drain the unique essence life of a human being, I would get their childhood, their native city and everywhere they have visited the food they have eaten, the wine they drank everything about them even the disease they have had and fought. The same applies to hydrosol water, the unique soil, the unique seasons, and the unique region of that plant life. Every hydrosol has its own unique botanical makeup.
