What exactly is a hydrosol? And what can it do for you?

Hydrosol: one could interpret this beneficial ingredient as a means of “hydrating your soul”. While that’s just a play on words, it’s not too far fetched.

A hydrosol (also known as plant waters or floral waters) is the water that is distilled with an essential oil. A hydrosol is created when the steam from the distilled water passes through the plant material. Through this process, it takes with it the pertinent oils from the plant. Hydrosols provide a more gentler version of the same therapeutic benefits as essential oils. They are safe for anyone to use as they can be used on skin, children, and many pets. They can also be consumed for health benefits.

There are different makes of hydrosols which can provide different benefits. For example, a chamomile hydrosol can be used as an anti-inflammatory providing cooling effects and may help in treating common skin conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis and other inflammatory conditions. A lavendar hydrosol promotes relaxation and can also be used as an anti-inflammatory.
