Hydrosols (hydrolats)

hydrolats2.jpgOshadhi offers 80 different hydrosols (hydrolats) of which 70% are certified organic. A true aromatherapy hydrosol is the water that is collected when plants are steam distilled, and that's it. Nothing else. This means that they should contain no additives, preservatives, or alcohol.

Hydrosols are sometimes called hydrolats, flower waters, or floral waters, and have a delicate nature and a light aroma. (See How to use hydrosols). They are ideal for situations that require gentle aromatic care, especially with children, the elderly, the highly sensitive, and those who are very debilitated by illness. And they can be highly effective because they contain the water-soluble parts of the plant, and the body is about 60% water.

Our best selling hydrosols are Helichrysum Hydrosol, Bulgarian Rose Hydrosol, Orange Blossoms Neroli Hydrosol, and Lavender Hydrosol. Please select from the list of hydrosols below.

Many people find that using a spraytop with the hydrosol gives an even coverage on the skin, causes less waste, and keeps the product fresher for longer. This is supplied separately here.
