Aqueous aromas – Hydrosols
Earthoil Hydrosols are the natural co-products formed during steam distillation of essential oils. This traditional process is carried out using modern equipment and materials but the process itself would be recognised by producers of essential oils from centuries ago. The hydrosols, as the name suggests, are the saturated solution of essential oil in water. This gives a delicately fragranced water that is stable and reproducible, and can be used at high concentrations in personal care products such as floral waters, misters and bath products.
Hydrosols have the same organic or fair trade status as the essential oil that is produced at the same time.
Earthoil can currently offer products based on Rose Oil and Tea Tree Oil, both of which are Fair Trade (Fair For Life – IMO) and Organic (Soil Association).
Other hydrosols can be sourced on request.
