Hydrosols, also known as hydrolats or floral waters, are produced
through the same process as essential oils. The distinction between
the two products is in the chemical make-up of the end product.
Hydrosols are predominately made up of hydrophilic compounds
of the plant, with a minute number of essential oil compounds.
They are used as a substitute for water in creams and lotions, for room and pillow sprays, single ingredient perfumes, facial toners and mood enhancers.
