What are hydro distillations and hydrosols?
The ancient art of distillation is intriguing and comprehensive. We are so honored to be working with one of the top distillers in the modern world. Jack Chaitman has created his own distillation equipment using the purest silica glass and the finest ingredients. We are excited to introduce such high quality essential oils and products. The process of hydro-distillation is key to creating a pure product. If stored properly these products should mature like a beautiful wine.
Hydrosols, or “Flower Waters,” are living oil molecules in water.Our bodies are 80% water so they more easily receive the medicinal properties of flowers, leaves, roots and resins through hydrosols. All of our simple blends are interchangeable. They can be used for facial mists to replenish the skin, for the hair or to deeply calm the nervous system. Spray them on or around you before bedtime, yoga or meditation, or to calm your upset child or parent. Our artisan distilled hydrosols bring nature’s elements to you at any moment, anywhere.
Hydrosols are a wonderful and gentle way to introduce those new to essential oils to the healing properties of plants and flowers. Hydrosols will ease melancholy, congestion, fever, and memory while toning the skin and supporting an overall sense of wellness.
One of our favorite ways to use these precious hydrosols is in our drinking water. You just need a teaspoon in a glass or water bottle to deliciously infuse and hydrate your body. We use them in cooking as well; they make salad dressings, soups and desserts exotic and outrageous. People often ask, amazed, what’s in here? Using our hydrosols internally would be your personal choice as we are not FDA approved.
Keep them cool and out of the sun. Refrigerate if possible. We spritz ourselves and share with our friends several times a day to lift our spirits, tone the skin and feel more grounded.
