Spraying Life To Body – Hydrosols

When its about helping and actually, taking care of the body with the help of most natural and mild of natural substances, there isn’t a better respite from the woes than a hydrosol. Present in the world are n number of natural essential hydrosols.

When plant material is distilled it is exposed to either boiling water, steam or both. The steam moves through the plant, breaks open the structures that contain the essential oil and other plant fluids.

They are then carried with the steam and are separated as the steam cools in the condensing coil. The essential oils tend to float on top of the water (except for a few oils that sink to the bottom). The essential oil is siphoned off, leaving us hydrosols.

Peppermint Hydrosol and Witch Hazel Hydrosol can help to ease itching caused by dry skin, dandruff and insect bites.

Use hydrosols to freshen a room and to benefit from the emotional and therapeutic properties that are inherent with the chosen hydrosol(s). Simply spray the hydrosol within your space as you would most any room mist. Do be careful to avoid furniture, other people, pets, open beverages and foods. Hydrosols can be used in place of water within AromaWeb’s Air Freshener Recipe.
