Hypnotizing Hydrosols – step 1 gather fresh herbs
Many of you probably don’t know, but we make many of the hydrosols we use from scratch. We make chamomile, lavender, rose, geranium, gardenia and rosemary. We pick the ingredients from our garden and start the long process of distilling them until they turn into magical, fragrant waters with healing properties.
What is a hydrosol?
It is a byproduct of extracting essential oils from plants. It is fragrant and contains tiny molecules of essential oil dispersed in a water solution. These oils hydrate the skin, nourish it and hold healing properties within each spray.
Step 1: Gather fresh herbs to go into the still.
Here we are collecting lavender for our latest batch.
Our next post will include a step by step description of the distillation process.
