MISSION STATEMENT As we move toward increasing our sustainability as a company, it is our mission as to develop more products focused on using local, sustainably sourced plants and ingredients.
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!

Originally bought this as a gift but I am keeping it! I will keep it in my desk at work for those crazy times when I get stressed at being pulled in ten different directions at once. Love it. Connie Moreno on Aug 3rd 2020
I just started using this toner and it’s been working great however, the scent is very strong. I don’t think I’ll be re purchasing. Unknown on Aug 1st 2020
I’ve never used hydrosols before so had no idea what to expect. This had a very pleasant smell and definitely acted like a toner on my face after my shower. Be sure to shake before spritzing. Unknown on May 26th 2020
