Wary of using essential oils around the house because of the kids and the pups? Or perhaps you are expecting and have to bid adieu to your favourite essential oils for the time being?
What if we tell you that there's a safe and gentler alternative? Yup, hydrosols will be your new best friend! Plant Therapy's Lavender hydrosol, for example, is a USDA certified organic, pure, and premium hydrosol distilled from the Lavender plant. Compared to the essential oil, this one has a more refreshing and greener aroma. Think of a lavender field after the rain!
It requires no dilution, dissolves easily in water-based applications, and is safe to use on babies, pets, and during pregnancy. Use it to soothe sunburns, windburns, bug bites, nappy rashes, itchiness, dryness, eczema, minor cuts and abrasions, as well as other skin irritations.
Lavender Organic Hydrosol is also very calming and grounding. Spritz on your face after a shower or spray on your hair to prep you up for a busy day ahead. After a long, tiring day, spray on the linens and pillows for a relaxing and comforting atmosphere!
Aromatic Description: Deep, earthy aroma
Botanic Name: Lavandula angustifolia
Shelf Life: 6-12 months when stored in refrigerator

Keep a spray bottle in your refrigerator and spritz on the skin to soothe sunburns, redness, itchiness, and other skin irritations.
Use as a natural bug spray to fend off insects such as flies, ants, spiders, fruit flies, and more. Spray on counters, sinks, and garbage cans.
Lavender organic hydrosol is an excellent aftershave and skin toner, fragrant addition to baths, or a rejuvenating add-on to your DIY skincare products.
Can be used as a natural plant spray to repel aphids and bugs, as a surface cleaner and disinfectant, as well as for washing fruits and vegetables.
It's also great for keeping your pet's coat clean and shiny. Keep this hydrosol on hand for minor wounds, scratches, and infections, or to calm them during a thunderstorm!
For a rehydrating toner, mix equal parts Lavender, Tea Tree, and Melissa hydrosols and add a splash of apple cider vinegar.
For nappy rashes, blend with Chamomile Roman Hydrosol.
For a refreshing hair spritz, blend equal parts of Lavender, Chamomile, and Rosemary hydrosols with the same amount of witch hazel.
For an anti-inflammatory mouth rinse, combine 1/2 cup each of Peppermint, German Chamomile, and Lavender hydrosols.
Hydro-what??? Hydrosols! Also known as hydrolates or even floral water, they are a fabulous addition to your natural wellbeing toolbox.
Hydrosols are often used in creating body products, room sprays and linen mists. They are also popular for use in other herbal preparations. They are an excellent complement to essential oils because they are gentle enough to be used directly on the skin and can be used on children and pets.
Hydrosols are distilled from the entire plant material, unlike essential oils which are often obtained from select parts of the plant. Therefore, hydrosols may smell quite different and distinct when comparing them to the essential oil of the same plant.
To prolong the shelf life, we recommend hydrosols be stored in the refrigerator from the time of purchase.
