As we are growing quite some herbs ourselves, totally organically, we started to make our own essential oils Growing and separating Moxa for Aromatherapy. We have been growing Moxa Artemisia A. The next step was logically to actually transform this very useful herb into essential oils.

Hydrolates are also known as Hydrosols, or Herbal and Floral or Flower waters, They are gentle, water-based plant extracts that expand the healing, cosmetic, and culinary applications of aromatherapy. A hydrolate is the condensate water that is left over after extracting essential oils by water or steam distillation.
This aromatic water contains the very essence of everything that was in the plant when it was still alive and growing, including some essential oil. Some of the aromatic and healing parts held within the plant are not captured by the essential oils. This steam condenses back into water, and contains small quantities of essential oil plus many of the water-soluble hydrophilic parts of the plant.

There is simply no substitute for a true hydrolate… Many 'floral waters' available today have been made with synthetic compounds which have no therapeutic or beautifying qualities.
Others are produced by adding essential oils or absolutes to water by using alcohol or some other type of dispersant or solvent. The finished product contains essential oil and may have a pleasant fragrance similar to a natural hydrolate but this type of reconstituted product lacks the wealth of vital healing properties present in a true hydrolate. Remember that many of the plant constituents were dissolved into the water whilst extracting the oil, so they were never present in the essential oil in the first place!
Therefore adding an essential oil to water will never create a product with the same range of healing benefits as a true hydrosol. There is simply no substitute for a true hydrolate… Take care when buying hydrolates produced from Jasmine or from citrus fruits or flowers that are usually extracted by solvents.

Hydrolates Benefits The plant matter used in essential oil distillation imparts a wonderful aroma to the water and also offer therapeutic benefits.
