WHAT IS A HYDROSOL? Hydrosols are often referred to as "floral waters" but they’re actually made from many different parts of a plant, including flowers, leaves, stems, roots, etc. They are crafted by distilling fresh plants on an alembic copper still. Hydrosols are the water portion of the essential oil distillation process. We distill fresh herbs on an alembic copper still, which results in a good amount of hydrosol and sometimes a very tiny amount of essential oil. The distillation process when distilling for hydrosols has some differences from an essential oil distillation, but it uses the same equipment.
WHY A COPPER STILL? Copper acts as a natural preservative and sweetens the final product in a way that stainless steel does not. Copper also ensures smaller batches, which typically ensures a higher quality product than one that is mass-produced.
WHERE DO WE GET OUR PLANTS? All plants for our hydrosols are from UGArden or Heartsong Herbs in Athens or were grown in our owner, Emilie's, garden in Atlanta. All of our plants are grown organically, but aren’t certified organic because they’re grown in much smaller gardens than organic certification makes sense for.
WHY CHOOSE A HYDROSOL OVER AN ESSENTIAL OIL? Essential oils certainly have their place in aromatherapy and natural products, but there are several important advantages to selecting a hydrosol to use instead of an essential oil:
WHAT ARE HYDROSOLS USED FOR? So many uses! The most basic use is as a face or skin spritz. They can be used as mild facial toners or cleansers, to cool hot skin (hello hot flashes!), a hair scalp or tonic, an aromatic mist, a pick me up, or for meditation. Plus, each herb has specific indications that it is good for. For example, lemon balm is an anti-viral that is great for treating and preventing cold sores!
I read about rosemary hydrosols to help with sebhorreic dermatitis. I found this little company during an online search and have been very happy with my purchase, as well as shipping and free sample of sugar scrubs! I love the little handwritten note on my invoices as well. I’m very happy I found this small business to support! Julia W. on May 3rd 2022
Purchased this for my hair line. It is a quality hyrosol and smells amazing. I even use it as a pick me up on my face.
Customer service is awesome and I highly recommend. Unknown on Dec 8th 2021
