A quick note: this is the first hydrosol I crafted in my copper alembic still! I am both inspired and humbled by the art of distillation and hope to continue practicing this craft for years to come. I am by no means an expert and the price of this hydrosol reflects my knowledge and skill at this current time.
A hydrosol is an aromatic botanical water. Our hydrosols are crafted in super small batches with fresh plants from our gardens and contain all the water soluble parts of plant including a small amount of essential oils.
Hydrosols have many cosmetic and therapeutic purposes and can be used all over face and body - although it is wise to test on a small patch of skin first.
They help balance skin pH and can be used as a gentle toner. Spray after cleansing and while the skin is still moist, apply whatever moisturizer you prefer - we like using the All-Over Salve, especially when our skin is parched!
You can also use hydrosols for rituals, ceremonies, purification and protection - the same way you would use a smoke wand or incense. Spray around your room or on your pillow and experience their uplifting, mood shifting qualities.
Hydrosols have a shelf life of 6-12 months from distillation and up to 24 months if stored in the refrigerator.
