Hydrosols are often used in creating body products, room sprays and linen mists. They are also popular for use in other herbal preparations. They are an excellent complement to essential oils because they are gentle enough to be used directly on the skin and can be used on children and pets.
Hydrosols are distilled from the entire plant material, unlike essential oils which are often obtained from select parts of the plant. Therefore, hydrosols may smell quite different and distinct when comparing them to the essential oil of the same plant.
To prolong the shelf life, we recommend hydrosols be stored in the refrigerator from the time of purchase.
Soothing during periods of stress, Melissa hydrosol can be sprayed on the fronts of shirts to soothe upset children. It is also wonderfully comforting on pillows and linens at the end of a long, hectic day. Melissa hydrosol is also ideal to promote healthy skin when used as a toner or in facial products.
