Ready to dive into the mysterious world of hydrosols? While they're perfect for beginners due to their uncomplicated and milder nature, choosing which one to get first can be a tad confusing, albeit exciting!
Why not start with Roman Chamomile hydrosol - perhaps one of the most versatile hydrosols out there. It's great for skin irritations and inflammation, helps promote restful sleep and is also a great support for the weary mind, body, and spirit!
Because of its natural antihistamine compounds, you can use it to treat pesky bug bites, reduce skin swellings, calm itching and allergies, and soothe various skin irritations like eczema and psoriasis. You can also use it to help brighten your skin tone, or reduce dark eye circles!
Roman Chamomile hydrosol is also safe to use on babies and children so it's a popular remedy for nappy rashes and is a great solution for teething babies. And have we mentioned that it's safe for our fur babies too? Yup, use it on anything from puppy teething pains to paw problems!
Aromatic Description: Earthy, light floral aroma
Botanic Name: Anthemis nobilis
Shelf Life: 6-12 months when stored in refrigerator

It's kid-safe so feel free to mist unto your baby's crib your children's pillow to promote restful sleep. Because of its gentle and calming nature, Chamomile Hydrosol is also perfect for teething babies!

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.
