Hydrolats (hydrosols) are the steam/condensation that is created during the process of making essential oils. Hydrolats/hydrosols do smell like the essential oil they are derived from, but they are not nearly as strong as an essential oil. Hydrolats/hydrosols are excellent to use as tonics, face sprays, body sprays, perfume bases, and as carriers for skincare products in place of using just water. They will impart a vary faint smell to your products, but nothing like adding the essential oil. These cannot be used in place of essential oils or fragrances with the expectation that your products will smell the same.
Our organic hydrosols are the best hydrosols for natural skincare. They are not diluted; they do not have water or preservative added. They are 100% pure plant hydrosols.
Having said all that, hydrolats/hydrosols are the BEST way to get plant bio-actives into your products without having the strong smells of the essential oils.
Organic Orange hydrosol/water/hydrolat is such an amazing, refreshing new spray or water alternative for your skincare products. This organic botanical water can be used in anything where you normally use water. You can make this the base of your brightening facial serum, or your summer breeze lotion, or a rich, hand cream. Add this to your summer mask refreshing spray (adds just a light scent, with a lot of freshness to your mask), or as spray for your car interior or even your musky dog.
You can mix any of our organic botanical hydrosols with essential oils to make a room spray, also. There are two ways:
- Just use the hydrosol and some essential oils and advise your customers that they will need to shake it each time before use as the essential oils will separate out OR
- Blend your essential oils with Polysorbate 80 (1 to 1 ratio), then add into your organic plant hydrosols. The polysorbate 80 works as an emulsifier to keep the oils suspended and it is 100% plant based!
Organic Orange Hydrosol has a faint orange flower citrus smell. This would make an amazing room spray blended with sweet orange 10x essential oil, bergamot essential oil, clove leaf essential oil, cinnamon leaf essential oil, cardamom essential oil, and a little vanilla absolute to make almost an Old Fashioned room spray.
Due to the soft smell profile of hydrolats/hydrosols you can use just about any of these with other essential oils.
