PRODUCT ABSTRACT

Our organic Comfrey Hydrosol is steam distilled from the vibrant green leaves of the Symphytum officinalis herb, also referred to as Knitbone. Comfrey Hydrosol is well known for its rapid healing attributes as well as its pain and inflammation management properties, making it an excellent choice to reach for when you have painful injuries.

Symphytum officinalis has been grown in gardens for centuries for its medicinal properties. This fantastic hydrosol is helpful in healing for skin and tissue wounds, managing pain and inflammation and reducing unwanted microbial activity. Aromatherapists also often recommend Comfrey Hydrosol to help soothe and heal ulcers, abscesses, chapped lips, acne, and scars. Nursing mothers find great relief in spritzing Comfrey Hydrosol on painful, cracked nipples as it dramatically accelerates the healing process. Part of Comfrey's rapid healing effect stems from the fact that it contains Allantoin, a tissue-healing proliferant.

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.
