Manuka Hydrosol

Hydrosols are the pure co-product of the steam distillation of plant material. When plants are steam distilled to produce essential oils, some valuable compounds of the plant, that are not found in the essential oil, become dissolved in the distillation water.

This condensed fragrant steam is known as hydrosols or aromatic waters. It contains some drops of the essential oil as well as water soluble plant properties which are anti-inflammatory and non-irritating for people with sensitive skin, many of the valuable properties of the Manuka are found only in the hydrosol. The hydrosol has the same therapeutic properties of the essential oil without the irritant potential. The micro drops of essential oil provide the scent and taste.  The plant components give the hydrosols their herbal therapy properties. Hydrosols are a gentle yet powerful therapeutic agent.
