Clearing The Confusions About Hydrosols

When there are things like hydrosols involved in a discussion, there are bound to be confusions regarding the same. Hydrosols are not the same as essential oils, as some of the poople take them to be. They are obtained from an entirely different process.

Sometimes you will hear the terms hydrosol and spritzer used interchangeably which is incorrect and misleading. Although true hydrosols are the original true floral waters (or herbal waters), be aware that any product sold as a “Floral Water” may or may not be a natural product. The term floral water could refer to a true distillate, but is just as apt to refer to a product containing nothing but synthetic fragrances in a chemical base.

That being the case, you may be wondering what the difference is between a true hydrosol and a spritzer or mister with a combination of water and essential oils. In reality, there is a huge difference. The ‘misters’ or ‘spritzers’ that you find in the store or even make at home, have their uses. They often are made of distilled or pure spring water with a few drops of the appropriate Essential Oil added and sometimes used for room scenting, for disinfecting, etc. But they aren’t to be confused with a true hydrosol, which can contain many other therapeutic benefits.

If I talk about the putting hydrosols in the best use then -

  • Spritz all over face and body to rejuvenate the skin and mood.
  • Place a hydrosol soaked cloth on sunburn, stings and bites to cool and calm the skin.
  • Place a steaming hydrosol in a bowl, lean face above bowl and cover head with a towel to breathe in the gentle aroma. Experience the ultra skin hydrating benefits.
  • Place a hydrosol soaked ( or steamed ) cloth on face to open pores or enhance a facial mask.
  • Spritz liberally for energetic enhancement of your environment.
  • Spritz on your pillow. Bath bliss: Put two to three tablespoons of hydrosol in your bath water to enhance with gentle aroma and healing benefits for the body, mind and spirit.
