What Are Hydrosols

Hydrosols are water-based extracts from plant material made from steam distillation. They’re produced alongside essential oils and share many of the same properties. The difference between essential oil and hydrosol is that hydrosols are water based. This means they’re much less concentrated than essential oils. They have a softer, more subtle scent and offer additional compounds from the plants not found in the oils.

  • Essential oil: the oil-soluble parts of the plant

When Quality Matters

When consistent quality natural ingredients matter, think NuLeaf Farms. 

The majority of herbs grown for industry are raised outdoors. Here plants are exposed to a range of contamination risks ranging from allergens, pests, and diseases. These pressures, combined with changing environmental conditions from one season to the next, make producing consistent plant quality almost impossible to attain.

At NuLeaf, our herbs are grown inside a controlled environment, where we can replicate the perfect growing conditions year-round. This allows us to produce the highest quality herbs, consistently, without the risk of contamination

With a wide range of applications, some herbal essences are better than others depending on what you are using them for. From freshening your house, to making skin care products and perfumes, here is a list of some of the most popular hydrosols we make and what they are commonly used for.
