Hydrolat VS Floral water

“Pure hydrolats are not to be confused with other floral waters which are produced by mixing water and essential oil” says Ada Ooi, our Founder.

hydrolat

Hydrolats or hydrosols, are waters which are collected when plant materials are steam-distilled to extract their essential oils.

During the process, a lot of active chemicals in the plant are released into the steam. When the steam is cooled it turns back into a liquid which contains the therapeutic chemicals that were released from the plant.

The hydrolats contain oily chemicals that contain essential oils and other nutritious chemicals from the plants. This water contains both minute molecules of the Essential Oil, as well as all the water soluble elements of the plant that are not present in the Oil.

Pure hydrolats are not to be confused with other floral waters which are produced by mixing water and essential oil. They might still do the hydrating job but dispersants like alcohol might also be added to mix them, which may reduce the efficacy of the essential oil. Some floral waters also have synthetic fragrance added.

Afterall, READ THE LABEL so you know what kind of floral hydrant you are getting.
