INCI Name: Artemisia dracunculus (Tarragon) Distillate Water
Our organic Tarragon Hydrosol is steam distilled from the rich, green leaves of Artemisia dracunculus herb growing wild in the fields and hillsides of France. The hydrosol has a sweet, almost anise-like, slightly spicy that can mask most unpleasant odours. Tarragon and other medicinally classified herbs, for many centuries known as
dragon herbs, were said to have the ability to cure the bites and stings of venomous beasts and mad dogs.
Tarragon Hydrosol is helpful to ease painful muscle spasms, especially those relating to the colon and digestive system. This hydrosol also helps soothe a spastic cough and other general muscle spasms that might occur in the body. It also has sedative properties and helps with sleep support. The hydrosol can be used as an all-natural deodorant to ward off unwanted smell. Furthermore, it exhibits anti-bacterial properties to eliminate microbes that cause body odor, especially underarm odor. Tarragon Hydrosol is an excellent source of antioxidants, which are crucial in fighting free radicals and reverse the oxidative damage brought by oxidative processes.
Emotionally and energetically, Tarragon Hydrosol protects and calms. It can help strengthen the mind and spirit and promote a sense of calm, especially if one is dealing with shock from a particularly intense situation or event.
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:
