Lavender Hydrosol, Certified Organic
This soothing and refreshing hydrosol water is steamed distilled in small batches to produce a very high quality lavender water. Our waters are made from certified organic, French lavender buds (lavendula officinalis) and were distilled for the sole purpose of creating this floral water. Hydrosol waters can be used in lotions, creams, bath preparations or straight on the skin for a soothing and healing effect. They provide mild tonic and skin cleansing properties and are generally safe for all skin types, even children.
Lavender is known to have a calming effect on children as well as adults, making this floral water an excellent addition to room sprays, lotions, facial toners, or simply pour some into a spray bottle and use directly on your skin.
This water contains a blend of three food-grade preservatives, which are natural organic compounds: potassium sorbate, sorbic acid and citric acid. No other preservatives or fillers are added.
Our hydrosols or flower waters are produced by steam-distilling plant material. They have similar properties to their essential oil counterparts, but are much less concentrated. Hydrosol Water is NOT an essential water. An essential water is a floral water where some essential oils are simply added to distilled water. Most (99.99%) of floral waters such as rose waters in the storefronts in your neighborhood are essential waters and NOT hydrosol water, regardless of whether or not the product name says “hydrosol”. You have to look at the back of the label. The real hydrosol label should say “Hydrosol produced by steam distillation”.
Our beautiful hydrosols come from devoted artisan distillers who steam small batches to make hydrosol only. Distilled in copper stills, we offer the highest quality available. Hydrosol aromas are mild and subtle in comparison to their essential oil counterparts. Sometimes bright and fragrant, many hydrosols have an herby or grassy note to them. This is because hydrosols are extracting all of the water soluble constituents in the botanical material.
Hydrosol provides mild tonic and skin cleansing properties and are safe for all skin types. Refrigeration is recommended if you are not going to use your hydrosol quickly.
