Distillates

Also  known  as  hydroflorates,  flower  waters  or  distillates, hydrosols are produced from steam-distilling plant materials. With  similar  therapeutic  properties  to  essential  oils,  these waters are much less concentrated.

These superior hydrosols are NOT a by-product of essential oil production, but   come from devoted   distillers   who, with artist-like precision, steam small batches of fresh floral and plant material  strictly  to  produce distillates.  Please  note  that  their aromas  are  mostly mild  and  subtle,  sometimes  bright  and fragrant,  most  distillates  have  an  herby  and/or grassy  note indicative of their authentic and therapeutic properties. Highly recommended and a safer, more economical and ecological alternative to essential oils. Wonderful as a facial splash, body perfume, deodorant or air freshener. Cool a hot flash, change your mood, or add them to lotions and creams.

Distillates are usually a by-product of essential oil production, but the highest quality comes from devoted distillers who, with artist-like precision, steam small batches of fresh floral and plant material strictly to produce distillate. Most of our distillatess are distilled in copper stills, (a few in stainless steel stills) and processed through certified organic methods in the Pacific Northwest and Europe. Distillates contain all of the essence of the plant in every drop, just like essential oils but in a milder form, making them suitable for all manner of applications where essential oils would be too strong. In most distillates, there is less than 5% actual essential oil.

All of our distillatess should be kept cool and dark. They are perishable and are better kept refrigerated unless you will use them within a short time.
