What Is A Lavender Hydrosol?
A true aromatherapy lavender hydrosol (or aromatherapy hydolat) is the water that is collected when plants are steam distilled. Here’s the procedure: 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.
