Aromatherapy questions

What is a Hydrosol?

Hydrosols are aromatic waters produced by steam distillation. Our hydrosols are intentionally distilled for enhanced therapeutic benefits, using fresh plant material distilled in a copper still for a longer period of time. Hydrosols are far less concentrated than essential oils, have very few safety concerns, and most are gentle enough to use on children.

How Hydrosols Are Used In Aromatherapy

Hydrosols can add so much natural beauty to your daily life! For example, you can incorporate them in your skin care. Use them to make water-based cleansers, and to tone your skin to help reduce breakouts. If your face often feels warm and red, a few sprays with lavender or rose hydrosol can help quiet your complexion and cool you down. 

Hydrosols are also excellent for natural cleaning. Use them to freshen your home by themselves, or blend with them to customize your own cleaning products. Learn more in chapter 4 of our free learning guide, Going greet at home: Natural cleaning with essential oils:

Karen Williams, Co-Founder, RN., CA.

I worked as a registered nurse for more than 35-years and wanted to enrich my career by pursuing my passion for plant-based medicine and natural wellness. After decades of continued study, I also enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience with the aromatherapy community.

As our Chief Executive, lead aromatherapist and product-sourcer, I am deeply proud to have the opportunity to work with small distillers around the world to offer high-quality, sustainable, organic, and wildcrafted products and share their benefits with our ever-growing community.

Jennifer Williams, Certified Aromatherapist, M.Ed.

I've always had a passion for learning and teaching and spent many years as a high school English teacher, helping people learn new skills, and developing a classroom culture built on trust and collaboration. On a trip to a distillery in Provence, France, I decided to devote myself to aromatherapy after watching distillers transform pink roses into stunning essential oil and hydrosol; and being moved by their passion.

I earned my aromatherapy certification at the Aromahead Institute and joined the team at Aromatics International as a co-owner, content creator, and educator. I also serve as an Instructor at the Aromahead Institute.
