Why add hydrosol into your wellness toolkit? Well, let's see. It's a natural skin toner, makeup remover, or body spray and a soothing addition to baths, facial steam, DIY creams, and natural cosmetics. It's wonderful for the skin, safe to use on children, the elderly, or your furry best friend. What's not to like?
Plant Therapy's Melissa Organic Hydrosol is distilled from the Melissa officinalis plant and has a sweet, lemon-like and herbaceous aroma. Compared to the essential oil, it's definitely lighter and has a subtle floral note.
Breakouts and oil skin woes? Melissa Organic Hydrosol has anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties. It can help with acne, eczema, shingles, psoriasis, sunburn, poison ivy rashes, and other skin issues. Great for mature skin but also awesome for sensitive skin, this hydrosol comes in handy with baby care. Use it as a wetting agent for baby wipes, to treat nappy rash, or spray on the linen to calm your little one.
Calming and soothing, Melissa Organic Hydrosol can also help create a relaxing living space. When emotions run high at home or when you're feeling overwhelmed with sadness or worries, lighten up with Melissa's uplifting scent. A quick spritz may be all it takes to get you back to the happy zone!

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.
