Flower waters is a traditional term used to describe the water that condensates after an essential oil has been extracted by water or steam distillation. It can be confusing because not all floral waters are floral (they can be made from bark, seeds, leaves etc and some ‘floral waters’ are not pure organic products at all, but manufactured to include all kinds of aggressive chemicals.
That’s why the aromatherapy industry often prefers to use the term ‘hydrosols’ or ‘hydrolate\' to describe these gentle but effective products which have been used for as long as we have a history of medicine and cosmetics. Whichever term you prefer, floral waters hydrosols or hydrolate our products are guaranteed to be pure organic flower water - nothing but the vital healing compounds contained within the plant that were dissolved into the water and of course, the water itself. This process is called floral water distillation.Floral waters uses:
There’s something very special about hydrofoils or floral waters. Because they contain the essence of the plant, they have wonderful therapeutic properties, just as essential oils do. But because they are already diluted by the pure water, floral waters uses are much more general.
