Lavender Hydrosol 100% Pure
Lavender Hydrosol is one of the products we get from an awesome distiller in Australia (If you’re on that side of the world, give us a shout ~ shipping is cheaper if you buy from him)! Many people around the globe love Chris’ unique Rosemary Essential Oil but few on our side of the globe have experienced his hydrosols.
Lavender hydrosol is fabulous to have on hand for many things . . . facial toner, nighttime linen spray for pillows, babies (yes, it’s often recommended for the wee ones) . . . I use it most to help soothe irritated skin, especially when blended with our Helichrysum Hydrosol.
Please keep in mind that hydrosols smell more like the plant than essential oils do . . . and by ‘plant,’ we mean the whole plant, not just the flowers. You’ll smell a lot of earthy and herbaceous notes in hydrosols that you don’t smell in the oil as a general rule. Please do not expect any hydrosol to smell exactly like the corresponding oil. Greet them as a new friend and they’ll treat you well in return!
A Word from Our Artisan Distiller[. . .] many distillers “cohobate” their distillations. This means that they recycle the collected hydrosol back into the water supply that generates steam, to maximise the collection of essential oil, and thus maximise the oil yield. The process of cohobation also dilutes the water-soluble plant compounds because the cohobated hydrosol is added to the water used for steam; it is not the sole supply of water for steam. Thus, the process dilutes both oil and water-soluble plant compounds of the hydrosol.
Those of you who know me also know we never cohobate. All of our hydrosols are distilled in a single pass, and are separated from the essential oil with a lower separation temperature than normal. This makes for an oil-rich hydrosol, [. . .]
As with all essential oils and hydrosols, it’s never a good idea to evaluate the aroma by smelling straight from the bottle. [. . .] I would ask that you evaluate on scent strips or an odourless blotting paper for a base reference when considering its aroma.
Thanks for reading, take care and bye for now!Chris Burder, Grower & Distiller
Lavender Hydrosol Safety Info
As with any topical product, if you experience new or worsening skin issues, discontinue use. Store your hydrosol in a cool dark place. Refrigeration will extend the life of your hydrosol (use your hydrosol within 1 year after purchase). If you dilute your hydrosol, dilute just enough for quick use and refrigerate any diluted material ~ do not dilute more hydrosol than you will use in a week. Take care not to accidentally introduce pathogens to your hydrosol.
With all hydrosols:
