CommonScents Hydrosols are Certified Organic and are purchased directly from the farm that grows and distilled them in the USA.
Hydrosols, also known as botanical distillates, plant or floral water, essentially address the same wellness challenges as essential oil, except in a less concentrated and water friendly form, which makes them more versatile for several other uses where essential oils might be too strong (as in the case of infants and babies, very ill and fragile individuals and the elderly). Or, when ingestion is preferred as a 'therapy', Hydrosols are recommended instead of Essential Oils, as a safer and more effective alternative.
They are extremely well tolerated as skin applications, nasal flushes, gargles, bathes and digestives.
Perfect for aromatherapy treatment of bedding and nightclothes!
Some hydrosols are by-products of essential oil production, but some (like our products) are made from distillers with the specific purpose of creating hydrosols. This makes those hydrosols of a much better quality than those created as a result of essential oil production.
The simplest Aromatherapy, they are already in a diluted state making them perfect for immediate skin application, spraying onto bedding or clothing, incorporating into food or drink.
Check out our varieties of hydrosols for you to consider for your next aromatherapy treatment when you are looking for something a little more mild than an essential oil, but if you're in need of the same therapeutic results.
Because Hydrosols are water based, they are also more fragile than Essential Oils and we recommend that you refrigerate them when possible after purchase, to extend their shelf life to about two years.
