What is a Hydrosol?
A true aromatic hydrosol contains the active properties of pure plant essences suspended in H2O from the steam distillation process. Hydrosols provide botanical hydration and toning with healing benefits for face, skin and hair.
Pranarom’s Hydrosols include micro filtering and UV filtering for an extended shelf life. Due to their delicate nature, please store in a cool, dry place. Hydrosols should not be stored in the refrigerator. They like a cool, stable environment and temperature fluctuations disturb them. If you do refrigerate yours, or if it is exposed to extreme temperatures, bring your hydrosol to room temperature gradually and gently.
Hydrosols are the water coproduct produced during the distillation of essential oils. Every essential oil creates a hydrosol. A common misconception about hydrosols is that they are water with essential oils added to them. They are not and have different properties than their essential oil counterparts.
Hydrosols hydrate, tone and refresh your skin naturally. They are most commonly used as facial toners to firm and balance the complexion and can help to cool the skin on hot days or during hot flashes. Especially if kept in the refrigerator! They also make your hair super soft. Hydrosols are extremely gentle, so they are safe to use while pregnant or nursing and around babies and pets.
Hydrosols make great bases for blending your own sprays; for room spritzers, aftershave, bug repellent, linen refreshers, yoga mat cleaners, bathroom, room, or car freshening sprays, sunscreens, and the list goes on.
