What is a Hydrosol?

Hydrosols are the steam distilled essences of plants and botanicals. Far gentler than the essential oils they are made in conjunction with, Hydrosols can be used in their pure form, directly on the skin and hair. Many essential oils should not be used directly on the skin or hair because they are so concentrated. Skin irritations or allergic reactions are common when using some essential oils improperly. Because hydrosols are the clean condensation from the same plants that these essential oils come from, they can be used right away on the skin and hair, alleviating the chance of skin reactions.

Why for the hair?

Our hair (curly hair folks) thrives in a moisture rich environment and water is one of the best ways to quench its thirst. The real role of moisture is in mitigating damage to hair during handling. This has a valuable role in ensuring that hair growth can be retained as less damage to the strand means that the hair can continue to be present for more years.

For the skin?
