Floral water (or Hydrosol) is the condensate that remains after the steam distillation of a herb for essential oil production. During steam distillation, vapor passes through the botanical material “breaking” the cells that contain essential oils, and other volatile components. The vapor is then cooled and condensed into floral water (hydrosol), which now contains a small quantity of essential oil as well as various water-soluble elements 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.
