Hydrolates (hydrosols) or Floral Water, is the result of the steam distillation process used to extract essential oils from plants and flowers. While an essential oil is a concentrate, the Flower Water that is left behind is a lighter version, up to 7% concentration, containing the water soluble properties from the plant.
Floral water can be used both on the skin and around the house. Giving the skin freshness and balance, it can be used as a toner or make up remover. For relief from emotional and body fatigue it can be used as compress or light massage oil. Around the house it can be used as a room fragrance or in some cases even to flavor a meal.
