Our Lavender Hydrosol is pure botanical water. To create this hydrosol, we steam distill organic lavender buds in water over a series of hours. The end result is a calming aromatic mist for the face, body and living spaces.
During the mid-summer months in Utah, the lavender is blooming and its fragrance is at its finest. The earliest memories I have of this sweet flower are from visiting my grandmother’s home in Utah during the summer. She loved lavender and planted lavender bushes throughout her yard. When I would visit, I remember picking off the little purple lavender buds from the bushes and rubbing them between my fingers to release their distinctive calming fragrance. In this Hydrosol, I wanted to capture that same sweet lavender essence that I developed such fond memories of when I was young. I also wanted to capture the other scents of the lavender plant that are so often lost in most lavender-based products.
This Lavender Hydrosol contains plant compounds from the lavender buds that may not be present in many lavender essential oils. As such, the aroma differs from that of a lavender essential oil. Also, as the lavender buds are steam distilled in water to release the water-soluble compounds of the lavender buds, the fragrance is more mild and gentle than a lavender essential oil. The antiseptic and soothing qualities of the botanical elements within this Hydrosol make it a useful skincare staple.
This product can be sprayed directly onto the skin as a refreshing and relaxing toner. It can also be sprayed on linens, pillows and in the air for a subtle, calming sensation. The scent is fleeting though so it is most favorable to spray on the face and body for that lovely hit of lavender.
