Do you use Hydrosols? Share your experience with us!
My pre-meeting ritual just got a revision. Purify and protect your space before you sit down for meditation, studying, coaching… with sweet grass hydrosol.
Hydrosols are aromatic waters produced when fresh leaves, fruits, flowers or other replant materials go through the steam distillation process. They are softer and gentler than the essential oil equivalent - often recommended for infants and pets.
Hydrosols contain all of the plant, so they differ from the essential oil in aroma and benefits.
My hesitation using them in the past has always been - I can just use the eo safely and seemingly more effective and trusted source. For confidence I rely on clinical expert consensus. For more targeted health benefits, I will use the essential oil (possibly even in combination with a hydrosol).
You may want to consider a hydrosols for air freshener, skin care, linen spray, perfume sprays, relieving stress, insect repellent, skin cooling, lymph support.
