Hydrosols balance our skin’s PH and equalize oil and water. They are mildly astringent, toning the pours and locking in moisture. Hydrosols absorb readily into the skin and are applied after cleansing and before (& after for extra dry skin) moisturizing. Apply hydrosols throughout the day to freshen up the complexion and get a dose of stress relieving aromatherapy. Depending on the plant that is distilled, hydrosols have all kinds of beneficial properties. From anti-inflammatory, to antibacterial, to hydrating. We make our small batch distillation with whatever herbs are in season that make excellent hydrosols. Check your micro batch Botanical Waters card to read about the herbs in your seasonal hydrosol. Often mother nature knows what we need better than we do.
The only ingredients in this hydrosol are artisan well water and the fresh botanicals from our land that we pack into our copper alembic still. The hydrosol is bottled and refrigerated immediately until it’s ready for the shipping studio. True hydrosols contain no preservatives. As a result, their shelf life is between 6-12 months, extended to 24 months if you keep the hydrosol refrigerated.
We load up our copper alembic still with fresh botanicals from the gardens and fields to produce hydrosol as the primary goal of our distillation. This is worth noting because most large companies sell hydrosol that is made as the byproduct of a distillation in which collecting essential oil is the primary goal. We prefer to let the fresh essential oils drip into our hydrosol in minute amounts where they lend their virtues in dilute amounts to our final product.
