What Is A Hydrosol?

A true aromatherapy hydrosol (or aromatherapy hydolat) is the water that is collected when plants are steam distilled. The steam is passed through the plant material where it collects many of the plant’s volatile aromatic compounds. Some of these compounds dissolve in water (hydrophylic compounds), and some don’t. The steam then passes through a condenser (where it is cooled), and turns back into a water-oily mix. The water contains the water-loving compounds, and the oil contains the other materials. These quickly separate out into the essential oil (which nearly always floats on the surface), and can be drawn off, and a water product. This is the hydrosol.

Health Benefits of Grapefruit Mint Hydrosol

Hydrosols 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.  Grapefruit mint is similar to peppermint hydrosol and is known for its cooling properties that are invigorating and refreshing to the body and senses.
