PRODUCT ABSTRACT

Our organic Catnip Hydrosol, also known as Catmint Hydrosol, is steam distilled from the beautiful purple-flowering Nepeta cataria plant cultivated in the charming countryside of Canada with the sole intention of hydrosol distillation. A surprisingly fresh hydrosol with a softly rounded mint note, Catnip is best known for its relaxing and comforting properties. Our aromatic Catnip Hydrosol can be used as a relaxing mist or as a base for a spray-mist insect repellent blend. Most felines react to catnip, and you may drive your cat wild with a few mists onto most anything that they are free to mangle.

The expectorant, mucolytic, and antispasmodic properties of Catnip Hydrosol are helpful for soothing lung congestion and easing spastic coughs caused by the cold, flu, or seasonal allergies. Catnip Hydrosol is also known to be effective at repelling insects such as mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas, making it a perfect natural alternative for use in all-natural bug sprays and insect repellents.

Emotionally and energetically, Catnip Hydrosol is super balancing, calming, and relaxing. It makes an excellent tonic for promoting deep, restful sleep. This wonderful hydrosol is also an excellent choice when looking to reduce nervousness or anxiety and can help relieve headaches caused by nervous tension. Its sedative properties can also come in handy when needing to calm the body and mind to get a good night's rest.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

PLEASE NOTE: Our range of Hydrosols, Hydrolats or Floral Waters are 100% pure and free from preservatives, alcohol and emulsifiers. These are the most genuine form of hydrosols (obtained by steam distillation of the plant parts): no infusion, no blend of essential oil and water; and no condensed water. These superior quality hydrosols are 3 to 5 times more concentrated when compared to other commercial grade hydrosols available in the market.

We guarantee a microbiological cleanliness of our hydrosols thanks to our stainless steel, glass system and our packaging procedure that includes the decontamination of all our bottles and caps with organic alcohol. We systematically do microbiological testing of all batches and publish the results on the analysis report for each batch. All our hydrosols are kept in a low temperature storage.

Our hydrosols are specifically distilled for the hydrosol, not produced as a by-product or even a co-product. These hydrosols are distilled using fresh plant material allowing us to capture not just all the volatile components of the plant, but more importantly, the cellular water from the living plant. This cellular water is usually lost under the conventional high pressurised steam runs for essential oils, or by using dried plant material. It is this cellular water, imbued with nutritious minerals, phytosterols, antioxidants, and countless other natural botanical chemicals, that imparts the hydrosol with the water-soluble aromatic and therapeutic properties of the plant.

Our exquisitely scented hydrosols therefore have a different make-up to their essential oil counterpart though they retain a small fraction of essential oil compounds (about 0.05 to 0.2 grams per litre) - mostly the gentler, more hydrophilic aromatic esters and alcohols. This is one of the reasons that makes hydrosols quite safe for children, the elderly, and anybody with pronounced sensitivities.

Our hydrosols are very versatile in use as:
Facial Cleanser: Moisten with a cotton pad and swipe across the skin of the face to cleanse.
Facial Spray: Close the eyes and lightly mist your face as a daily refresher. Store hydrosol in the refrigerator for extra-cooling skin relief.
Facial Mask: Mix the hydrosol with clay or body butter and apply to cleansed skin. Rinse after 10-15 minutes.
Bath Additive: Simply add to your bath water.
Hair Care: Spray onto cleansed hair and gently massage the hair and scalp. Do not rinse.
Deodorant & Perfume Spray: Mist under arms and as needed elsewhere to help prevent body odor.
Foot Spray: Mist the tops and bottoms of feet to help control foot odor and to refresh your feet.
Aroma Massage: Spray the hydrosol on oily skin before starting the massage.
Meditation/Prayer Spray: Hydrosols can be used to help enhance meditation and prayer.
Car Freshening Spray: Mist the interior of your car, avoiding polished, painted and fragile surfaces.
Linen Refresher: Simply spray to freshen and fragrance sheets, towels, pillows and other linens.
Calming Spray: Mist your room, body and face using hydrosols that are reported to help reduce stress and anxiety.
Aromatic Substitute for Water in Personal Care Recipes: Enhance your lotion, cream, room mist and other recipes that call for water with skin-safe hydrosols.
