Introducing our newest all-natural lavender product, Lavender Hydrosol! Also known as floral water, this crystal-clear, all-purpose spray comes from the steam distillation of flowers from the farm. The by-product is far less concentrated than essential oil, but touts many of the same benefits.
Lavender hydrosol serves as a facial toner, 100% pure antiseptic, insect repellent, skin soother, and more. Again, its benefits are similar to lavender essential oil, but more easily disseminated in a distilled, spray form.
What does it smell like?
The scent varies from bottle to bottle. Like wine or honey, the essence is in the timing of the harvest.
At different times in the lavender plant growing process, the earthy fragrance can be sweet or grassy, or it can have a honey scent. Customers have even noted when testing in the shop: that it can almost smell buttery! It all depends on the oil content of the lavender derived during the process. The earlier we collect the hydrosol, the more potent it can be. The later we collect, the more floral the fragrance.
We found this description the most apt:
"Hydrosols contain all of the essence of the plant in every drop, just like essential oils but in a milder form, making them suitable for all manner of applications where essential oils would be too strong."
