PRODUCT ABSTRACT

Our organic Citronella Hydrosol is steam distilled from the sustainably wildcrafted tall, green blades of Cymbopogon winterianus growing wild in Indonesia. The essential oil extracted from Citronella Java grass is particularly sought after by natural perfumists due to its lovely, complex aromatic profile. On the same lines, Citronella Hydrosol has a fresh, sweet, citrusy-lemony scent helping to usher balance and calm.

Citronella Hydrosol is extremely effective to help reduce uninvited bacterial, fungal, and viral activity. It is both an antioxidant and astringent, making it a fantastic choice for DIY skin care blends formulated for clarifying and rejuvenating the skin. Just like its essential oil counterpart, Citronella Java Hydrosol can be used to help repel mosquitoes and other insects that come around causing mischief. Citronella Hydrosol is also helpful for reducing unwelcome pain and inflammation.

Emotionally and energetically, Citronella Hydrosol is calming and great for promoting sleep support. It the perfect spray to deliver a fresh, clean scent that help cool and dispel negative emotions. It offers emotional protection and can help reduce overall fatigue and improve overall mood.

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.
