PRODUCT ABSTRACT

Our Frangipani Hydrosol is distilled from the five-petaled flowers of Plumeria alba cultivated in India. These creamy white flowers spiral open to reveal delicate yellow-orange shading toward the spiral's center and emit a very powerful fragrance, particularly at night. The hydrosol has a gentle, honey-sweet, creamy, gardenia-like aroma with subtle, very pleasant earthy undertones. Frangipani is highly regarded in Ayurveda due to the scent's rejuvenating qualities for the mind and body. it is believed to effects deep internal cleansing that refreshes the mind, body and soul.

In folklore, the sultry Frangipani flowers covers a lot of mythological territory, it is often seen as a symbol of peace and tranquility, while in India, called the Tree of Life, it is associated with death and funerals, and in Malaysia it is the fragrance of the vengeful undead. In the language of flowers for this Tahitian icon, a blossom worn behind the left ear conveys happiness in love, while one behind the right ear denotes amorous receptivity.

Frangipani is most valued not only for its rich, sultry and sweet fragrance, but also its deep cleaning properties that make it extremely useful for perfumes, skin creams, soap and lotions. It is added to shampoos, hair packs, conditioners and gels as an aromatic ingredient. One can use Frangipani Hydrosol as a room fragrance - spray all over the room for an invigorating fragrance.

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.
