Hydrosols, also called hydrolates, are flower or plant juices, distilled juices, or plant waters, and are a water-containing by-product of the distillation process.
Hydrosols have many medicinal benefits because they contain the water-soluble component, vitamins and minerals of the plant subjected to distillation. Hydrosols may also contain small amounts of aromatic oils of the plant being treated.
As stated by Suzanne Catty in the book "Hydrosols - The Next Aromatherapy": Hydrosols are condensed water of plants and flowers extracted by steam distillation or immersion. Generally, distillation is applied to obtain aromatic oils, but it can also be done only to obtain hydrosol.
Catty also states in the book that the hydrosol to be used for medicinal purposes should be obtained from organic or certified organic plants, that is, plants grown through agriculture free of agricultural pesticides and artificial fertilizers. Ideally, the entire therapeutic effect is preserved by long-term distillation under low atmospheric pressure.
While producing our hydrosol products, the product and water are not put in the same place. Distillation time never exceeds 3 hours according to the product features. Therefore, the product properties do not decrease by combining with water vapor. If desired, from 100 Kg product can be taken in 100 liters of hydrosol in 3 liters of hydrosol. In accordance with the principles of our company, we do not subject any product to distillation for more than 3 hours.
