DESCRIPTION: Hydrosols are produced by distilling plant materials (leaves, bark, flowers, fruits etc) They have a scent that is reminiscent of the plant material's essential oil but subtler - much less concentrated. They contain very little of the plant's hydrophilic aromatic esters, so they are quite gentle on the skin.
We also call them Bioactive waters because they contain the plant's cellular water and other volatile botanical compounds that have skincare and haircare benefits. The hydrosols we offer are specially distilled, they are not by-products or co-products. They come preserved for longer shelf life.
Our Frankincense Hydrosol is a product of the steam distillation of the Frankincense resin. It has a resinous fresh scent with sweet and woody undertones. It's rejuvenating on the skin and helps to calm irritated skin. It also helps protect the skin and aids in wound healing.
Frankincense hydrosol is a good way to enjoy the minute benefits of the pricey essential oil.
