Hydrolates (Floral Waters)

Hydrolates (sometimes called floral/herbal waters or hydrosols) are a by-product of the distillation of essential oils.  During distillation, steam is passed through the plant material, which evaporates the tiny essential oil molecules in the steam.  As the steam containing the oil molecules travels through the still, it cools and condenses back into a liquid (water containing essential oils), which is collected.  The essential oils usually float (and sometimes sink) so that they can easily be drawn off the water.

Although most of the molecules of essential oils not soluble in water (and can therefore be easily drawn off), some of the aromatic molecules are water soluble and therefore give the water its own aromatic character and therapeutic qualities.

We have very low stocks of our beautiful organic rose hydrolate.  It is unlikely that we can bring this same product in again at this price.  If you intend on ordering a larger quantity, please email us to check availability before ordering.  Thank you!
