What is a Hydrosol? Hydrosols are produced by distilling various parts of fresh leaves, fruits, or herbs. Through steam distillation we are able to obtain botanical waters comprised of plant acids, minerals, small amounts of essential oil, and other water-soluble compounds found within the plant. Hydrosols have similar properties to essential oils, but are much less concentrated, softer, and have more subtle herbaceous notes. We distill our own seasonal hydrosols in a traditional copper alembic still. Utilizing wildly foraged or locally organically grown botanicals at the peak of their soon. These energetic and therapeutic waters help to rebalance skin's pH, regulate oil production, clear problematic skin, and soothe irritation.
