What are Hydrosols?

Hydrosols, also called floral waters, hydrolats or distillates, are a by-product of essential oil distillation. Ignored and discarded for a long time, hydrosols have recently been rediscovered for their therapeutic properties, which are similar to their corresponding essential oils, but much milder.

Hydrosols are used mainly in skin care, in cleansers, toners and anti-ageing serums and moisturisers. They are good for all skin types, both mature and young skins, balancing for both oily and dry skin types. They are antiseptic and are naturally pH balanced for the skin. In addition, many hydrosols are used in cooking as natural flavouring in various types of dishes, soups and deserts; particularly in fruit salads.
