What Is A Hydrosol?

So what is a hydrosol anyway? When you distill an essential oil, you get the oil portion of the plant, which is the essential oil and the water portion, which is the hydrosol. When looking for hydrosols, make sure they are distilled specifically for the hydrosol, not as a byproduct of the essential oil — which ours are! Hydrosols can also be called hydrolats or floral waters. With similar properties to their essential oil counterparts, hydrosols are less concentrated. Both non-aromatic and aromatic plants can be distilled for a hydrosol. The aroma of a hydrosol may vary from that of the essential oil 👃🏽
