Hydrosols, also known as floral waters, hydroflorates, flower waters, essential water, herbal water or distillates are products from steam distilling plant materials. Hydrosols are like essential oils but in far less of a concentration.
Hydrosol is the water based product of the distillation process it contains the water-soluble constituents. Customers will be happy to know that when they purchase a Cocojojo Hydrosol, they are getting a 100% distilled product. The reason many people choose hydrosols is because they have the same benefits of the plants, in a smaller concentrated dose. Hydrosols are going to be lighter on the skin and be less irritating than an essential oil would be.
Hydrosols are usually distilled once a year with the fresh harvest season. We try to contract for enough material to last between distillations, but we may run out of your favorite hydrosol before the next distillation season begins. Hydrosols should be kept in a cool, dark place. Refrigeration is recommended if you are not going to use your hydrosol quickly.
