Organic Lavender Hydrosol
Hydrosols represent the true synergy of herbalism and aromatherapy. They are the pure natural water that is produced during the distillation process. Plants or flowers are put into a distillation tank and subjected to either boiling water and/or steam. The steam softens the scent cells and the essential oil is released as a vapor. The vapor mixes with the steam and is only separated again as the steam cools in the condensing tank. As it cools, the essential oil molecules separate from the steam and float to the surface leaving two layers. The top is the essential oil and the bottom is the hydrosol.
Lavender hydrosol is a workhorse. General uses for our organic lavender hydrosol are soothe sunburn, cool heat rash, heal irritation, cleanse cuts and scrapes, tone skin, helps itching, freshen sheets naturally, relieves stress whether simply sprayed directly on body or used in compresses, rehydrates while traveling and helps with insomnia.
Note: We are sold out of our own Napa Valley lavender so this comes from a local small farm that is producing the finest of hydrosols we have experienced.
