There are certain things that cannot be confined to definitions, hydrosols are just one of those. When we speak of hydrosols, the very first thing that crosses the mind is purity. Hydrosols are extremely pure and extremely healing and curing in nature.
During the production of essential oils, the steam distillation process of the aromatic plants results in two products -

During the cooling process, the oil soluble component is separated out from the water. And since the aromatic molecules has already passed through the water, the remaining hydrosol (water) is now enriched with a mixture of beneficial aromatic properties.
