About Hydrosols: Hydrosols contain all of the essence of the plant like essential oils but in a milder form. The word hydrosol, ‘hydro’ water and ‘sol’ solution means water solution and refers to the fact that a hydrosol is water containing plant molecules, it is produced alongside essential oil in the process of steam distillation. This makes them suitable for applications where essential oils may be too strong. Try hydrosols as a facial splash, body perfume, deodorant or air freshener.
