Floral water (or Hydrosol) is the condensate water that remains after the steam distillation of an herb for essential oil production. During steam distillation vapor passes through the botanical material, “breaking” the cells that contain essential oil and volatile ingredients. The vapor is then cooled and condensed to floral water (hydrosol), which contains a small quantity of essential oil in addition to water-soluble (hydrophilic) parts of the botanical material.
It retains mild, yet potent medicinal and therapeutic properties and is ideal for situations that require gentle, natural care.
Floral Waters are an excellent natural base to create personal and home care products, or can be used on their own as body sprays, facial toners, hair care products, linen sprays, air fresheners.
