Top 3 Benefits for using Hydrosols

1. Gentle and Safe for All Skin Types: Hydrosols are mild and non-irritating, making them suitable for even the most sensitive skin. They maintain the essence of the plant in a less concentrated form than essential oils, offering soothing, hydrating, and toning benefits without the risk of irritation.

2. Versatile Usage: Hydrosols can be used in a variety of ways - as facial toners, in aromatherapy, as linen sprays, for wound care, or as ingredients in homemade skincare products. Their versatility extends to culinary uses, where food-grade hydrosols can flavor drinks, desserts, and dishes.

3. Therapeutic Properties: Despite their mild nature, hydrosols possess therapeutic properties that can benefit the mind, body, and soul. Depending on the plant they are derived from, they can have anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, calming, or uplifting effects, among others, contributing to overall well-being.

How to use Hydrosols?

In Suzanne Catty's brilliant book "Hydrosols the Next Aromatherapy" she explains thoroughly all the benefits and the different ways of using hydrosols. I really recommend reading her book!

Here is what she writes:

"Hydrosols are mild but effective. They can be used undiluted without problems for most topical applications. In some ways you can treat them like water, for instance, to wash a cut or scrape, but it must be remembered that they differ from water in many ways. Hydrosols do contain some essential oils, so whichever one you use will contain some but not all of the properties of the oil, and you will receive some of the benefits that you would get if you used the respective oil.

Hydrosols have a very different pH than water; they are always either slightly acid, like lavender, or very acid, like rock rose. Rock rose, because of its extreme aciditity, is highly astringent and will constrict cells where it is applied. This means it is useful to stanch bleeding; it is also great for tightening pores and reducing wrinkles.

Lavender, with an almost neutral pH, may be better choice if a wound contains dirt or pus, since it can wash the debris out of the cut more easily, as the cells remain open and bleeding will help clean the wound."

Ways to use hydrosols

1. Spray undiluted hydrosols all over the body as a quick refresher, to cool the body temperature or stimulate circulation, to reduce the impact and damage of sun exposure, as a deodorant, or as a subtle perfume.

2. Use neat hydrosols to make your own wet wipes, for both adult and infant personal hygiene (Chamomile Roman is perfect for infants and kids)

3. Use as hand spray to prevent the spread of germs in cold season, or when you are traveling and are being exposed to far more germs than at home.

4. Treat skin conditions like eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, and poison ivy. Use several small applications per day, the general rule would be no less than three and as many as twelve small localized applications per day, every day until symptoms resolve.

5. Hydrosols can greatly relieve the itching, pain, and redness of the skin in case of for instance eczema. They can slow down the flaking process and speed up the healing.

6. It is very important that you buy organic preservative-free hydrosols.
