ABOUT THE PLANT

Our organic Hyssop Hydrosol is steam distilled from the handpicked, deep purple flowers of Hyssopus officinalis growing wild in the rocky hillsides of France. This hydrosol has a lovely, herbaceous and sweet aroma. The hyssop plant has been traditionally used since ancient times and is still considered an important medicinal herb by herbalists today. It is most often affiliated with supporting the lungs and healthy respiration, but it is also believed to be very cleansing, purifying, and supportive of the digestive system, as well.

Hyssop has properties that can help open the airways, relieve coughs, and chest congestion. It can be used in a compress and placed over the lung area to help soothe and cleanse the lungs. It also has antiseptic and antimicrobial properties and is widely used as a room spray or added to a diffuser to cleanse the air, helping to remove unwanted germs from your living spaces. Our organic Hyssop Hydrosol can also be useful for promoting healthy skin as a very purifying and hydrating toner that can be used on all skin types.

Emotionally and energetically, Hyssop Hydrosol cleanses, strengthens and invigorates the mind, fortifies against negativity, helps with mental clarity, and improves concentration. Hyssop Hydrosol is useful for helping manage situational or seasonal depression making it a great addition to any holistic healing collection.

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.
