Distillate waters date back hundreds, if not thousands of years, and actually predate essential oils.
The word hydrosol comes from the Latin root “hydro” and “sol” which means “water solution.” When a plant is distilled to obtain an essential oil, many chemical compounds of the plant build up in the water. A hydrosol is the distillate water that remains under the thin layer of essential oil after the steaming process. Hydrosols contain many of the same beneficial components of essential oils, but in a much more subtle, gentle way.
Hydrosols can be used in a myriad of therapeutic, aesthetic and energetic applications. They are beneficial for all skin types and safe to use with babies and animals.
In this full 3-day class, you will learn how to make hydrosols in small batches and how to use what you make!
Friday and Saturday June 29-30, students will be in the classroom at the Pompeii Street Soap Company in Mifflinburg where we will focus on the waters, their benefits and applications.
