Safety Data Sheet:
Hydrosols are the aromatic remains following a plant’s steam distillation process. They consist entirely of cellular botanical water, which includes unique water-soluble compounds that provide each hydrosol with distinct characteristics and benefits. Use these gentle, delicately scented waters directly on the skin for individuals of all ages, spritz onto water-safe fabrics, or add to your favorite DIY body care formulations.
We recommend that all hydrosols be stored in the refrigerator from the time of purchase.
Hydrosols are often used in creating body products, room sprays and linen mists. They are also popular for use in other herbal preparations. They are an excellent complement to essential oils because they are gentle enough to be used directly on the skin and can be used on children and pets.
Hydrosols are distilled from the entire plant material, unlike essential oils which are often obtained from select parts of the plant. Therefore, hydrosols may smell quite different and distinct when comparing them to the essential oil of the same plant.
To prolong the shelf life, we recommend hydrosols be stored in the refrigerator from the time of purchase.
