What Are Hydrosols

Hydrosols are water-based products made from the distillation of our fresh herbs. They’re produced the same way as essential oils, through steam distillation, and share many of the same properties. The difference between essential oil and hydrosol is that hydrosols are mostly water. This means they’re much less concentrated than essential oils. They also have a softer, more subtle scent and additional compounds from the plants not found in the oils.

  • Essential oil: the oil-soluble parts of the plant                       
  • Hydrosol: the water-soluble parts of the plant (this liquid also contains microscopic drops of essential oil)

Using Hydrosols

Sometimes referred to as floral waters, hydrosols are increasing in popularity for use in all-natural beauty and cosmetic products. Gentler than essential oils, hydrosols can be applied directly to your skin without needing to dilute them with a carrier oil. Hydrosols may be used in a variety of products, including:

  • Perfumes, skin toners and makeup                   
  • Aromatherapy
  • Lotions, soaps and shampoo’s 
  • They can even flavor drinks and other foods
Cosmetics
Natural source of aromas for soaps, lotions and creams and other personal health products

When Quality Matters

When consistent quality natural ingredients matter, think NuLeaf Farms. Manufacturers of hydrosols and essential oils either grow or source their herbs from outdoor farms. By growing herbs outdoors, the plants are exposed to contamination from allergens, pests, and diseases. These pressures, combined with changing environmental conditions from one season to the next, make producing consistent product 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.
