INCI Name: Cupressus Sempervirens Leaf Distillate Water
Our organic Cypress Hydrosol is steam distilled from the brightly aromatic cones, leaves, and twigs of the evergreen cypress tree Cupressus sempervirens growing wild in the hills and mountains of Spain. Cypress Hydrosol is a highly purifying hydrosol, simultaneously working to support both the physical and emotional terrain, particularly promoting healthy circulation.
Along with helping to encourage healthy circulation, Cypress Hydrosol is a lovely choice when looking to ease unwanted muscle spasms, reduce the presence of unwelcome bacteria, and help promote proper lung function. Many aromatherapists recommend Cypress Hydrosol in blends formulated to bring ease and relief in the instance of spasmodic coughing, or to help open the airways in the early onset moments of a minor asthma attack. It is also a lovely hydrosol to use when one is experiencing restless leg syndrome.
Emotionally and energetically, Cypress Hydrosol is calming and grounding. It can help calm excessive worrying and usher in peace when one is feeling overwhelmed. Along with promoting balance, Cypress Hydrosol is used in wound care as it is helpful in reducing pain and inflammation and the presence of unwanted microbial activity. This hydrosol is used to soothe burns, help relieve bug bites, itchy hives, topical allergic reactions, and other skin challenges.
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:
