Product Overview

Suitable for all ages and skin types, the elegant aroma and beneficial properties of Neroli Hydrosol are some of the most renowned of all hydrosols. Used as a skin and facial refresher, its cooling and astringent nature helps to tonify oily and overreactive skin, while its gentle and conditioning properties are ideal for hydrating delicate, sensitive, dry and mature skin. Neroli Hydrosol may be used in masks and steams, as an after-shave or nighttime linen spray, and to moisten the skin before application of facial oils and serums. The tranquil aroma is pleasing to children and babies, in the car or the nursery, and a spoonful can be added to bathwater especially before bed.

Botanical formulators find use for Neroli Hydrosol in body lotions, creams, facial serums, toners, gels and other preparations. The pleasant, true-to-flower aroma makes it a wonderful and economical alternative to Neroli essential oil. It can be applied to skin and hair as a gentle perfume anytime a comforting and uplifting aroma is desired.

Our hydrosols are distilled using fresh plant material that not only allows capture of all the volatiles, but most importantly, the cellular water from the living plant. It is this cellular water, imbued with nourishing minerals and fatty acids, that make it dynamic and vibrant compared to using dried out material with a resulting loss of those important skin-refreshing and aromatic molecules.1 Aromatic hydrosols contain the water-soluble active principles of the plant. They retain a tiny amount of essential oil compounds (about 0.2 grams/liter2) - mostly the gentler, more hydrophilic aromatic esters and alcohols and are subsequently unlikely to cause skin irritation.3

The gentleness of hydrosols is ideally suited in the delivery of their attributes for children, the elderly, and those with pronounced sensitivities. They are also a profound and delightful way to experience and appreciate the life force - with all its potentiality for wholeness - found in the aromatic waters of the plants.

PLEASE NOTE: The hydrosols we offer are specifically distilled for the hydrosol, not as a co-product or even a by-product. The plant's cellular water and many components - normally lost under pressurized short steam runs for essential oil, or by using dried material - are what the producers specifically distill for by using only fresh plant material right from their farm or from local farms to ensure that the plant material is as fresh as possible.4
