(WHAT THEY ARE AND ALL THEIR BENEFITS)
"Life isn't always really glamorous and fabulous. It's about encouraging people to go back to natural beauty." (Zoe Foster Blake)
Hi everyone! Welcome to www.earthessentialsbyerica.com and thank you for stopping by!
In this article, we will talk about hydrosols, what they are, and what their fantastic benefits are for the skin!
WHAT ARE HYDROsols?
By hydrosol, we mean a distilled solution that contains volatile and water-soluble active ingredients of vegetable origin, such as herbs, leaves, flowers, rhizomes, roots, woods, and bark.
A hydrosol is a type of aromatic water that is produced through the process of steam distillation. It is a byproduct of essential oil production, where plant materials such as flowers, leaves, or herbs are steamed to extract their essential oils. During this process, the steam carries the volatile compounds of the plant, including both the essential oil and water-soluble components, which later condense and separate into two layers. The upper layer contains the essential oil, while the lower layer is the hydrosol. Hydrosols are often used in skincare, aromatherapy, and as natural fragrances due to their gentle nature and subtle scent.
Hydrosol is floral water that derives precisely from the steam distillation of leaves and flowers of a plant and keeps intact the scent and properties of the essential oil from which it is derived.
The birth of hydrosols is very ancient thanks to the Arabs who in the X century began to distill aromatic waters and discover all their virtues, both for internal use and cosmetic purpose.
For a real pampering of your skin and your spirit, hydrosols are the right product for you!
Unlike essential oils, hydrosols are much lighter and more delicate, have fewer contraindications, and can also be indicated for pregnant women and small children.
They can be used pure on the skin or added to other ingredients, contain no chemical additives, and are perfect for even the most sensitive skin.
Let's find out all their benefits together!

Mist your skin with 5-8 sprays of hydrosol, and then apply the oil overtop while your skin is still damp. This method delivers the same benefits as using a water-based cream or a lotion, only without the additional toxic emulsifiers and preservatives!
