A hydrosol is the by-product of a steam distillation. When the condensation is captured and cooled the first liquid that is formed during this process is the hydrosol. For approximately every liter of hydrosol that is captured, 1 gram of oil is produced. It is the oil that we use for Essential oils ingredients. The beauty of the hydrosol is that has the same scientific components from the oil in the plant water. This becomes a wonderful product when we want to add other essential oil’s to the solution and have them bind. (like the decadent face spray that we make)
