A hydrosol is the product of the gentle distillation of aromatic plants in water using a copper alembic pot still. The heat of the water softens the cells, releasing the constituents of the plant into the water. The parts that are water soluble and the highly volatile micro molecules of essential oils are caught in the vapour. The hot steam rises and all matter drops out as it spirals in the minaret dome of the still. It travels along a pipe to a coil in a condenser bucket that has cold running water flowing through it where it cools and becomes a liquid again.
Hydrosols contain all the therapeutic qualities of both the plant itself through its water-soluble properties and the therapeutic properties of the essential oils which are present in the hydrosol in tiny micro-drops.
