What is basil hydrosol?
Hydrosols, also known as floral waters, hydroflorates, flower waters, essential water, herbal water or distillates, have many uses for beauty, home, and more! Our organic hydrosols are produced by steam-distilling botanical material. They have similar properties to their essential oil counterparts, but are much less concentrated. Also known as Sweet Basil, our basil hydrosol is aromatic and makes a great toner for skin.
Basil hydrosol is a by-product from the steam-distillation of basil essential oil. It’s sharp and distinct aroma is very aromatic and can feel invigorating, which is why it is often seen in aromatherapy. This energizing aroma makes a great facial spray and toner because of its effect on the skin. It moisturizes and tones the skin to help improve your skin health. It can also be sprayed around your rooms for aromatherapeutic purposes. It’s a multipurpose spray that can be used for anything! So the next time someone asks you “what is basil hydrosol?” you’ll know what to tell them.
Hydrosols are usually distilled once a year with the fresh harvest season. We try to contract for enough material to last between distillations, but we may run out of your favorite hydrosol before the next distillation season begins. Hydrosols should be kept in a cool, dark place. Refrigeration is recommended if you are not going to use your hydrosol quickly.
Shelf Life: Users can expect a shelf life of 2 year with proper storage conditions (cool, out of direct sunlight). Refrigeration is optional, but may extend the life of your hydrosol.
