"Water Solution" is the Latin translation of the word, but in aromatherapy a hydrosol is the molecular melding of the essence of a plant or aromatic substance with the water that is used to distill the essential oils from the plant material. Hydrosols are also known as floral waters or hydroflorates. Flower waters or distillates are produced from steam-distilling plant materials. Hydrosols contain all of the essence of the plant in every drop, just like essential oils but in a milder form; making them suitable for all manner of applications where essential oils would be too strong. The highest quality of hydrosols comes from devoted artisan distillers who, with steam distill small batches of fresh floral and plant material strictly to produce hydrosol.
Our hydrosols at Stillpoint Aromatics are stored in sterilized clear glass bottles in our dark cold room until an order is placed. The hydrosol is then especially poured for you, with conscious intention, into a sterilized clear glass bottle. We use clear glass bottles for our hydrosols so you can see "what is going on inside the bottle." You can not see mold/fungal growth in colored glass like blue or amber.
