WHAT IS A HYDROSOL ?
Hydrosols are the condensate water coproduced during the steam- or hydro-distillation of plant material for aroma-therapeutic purposes.
Hydrosols do not come just from flowers but also from roots, bark, branches, wood, needles and leaves. Fruits and seeds can also produce hydrosols.
Hydrosols contain all the essence of the plant in every drop. It contains water-soluble components, the essential-oil molecules, plant acids ,the very fluid that was flowing through the plant cells when the plant was collected. Not surprisingly, hydrosols and essential oils have similar therapeutic properties. However, hydrosols are much less concentrated. Their scents are much softer and subtler when compared to those of their essential oil analogs .Due to their high water content, they're also very gentle and can be applied directly to the skin without any sort of dilution.
