Lavender Hydrosol's Everyday Benefits
Also known as floral water, Lavender Hydrosol is an ideal means of bringing the all-natural antiseptic, cleansing, oil solvent and insect repellent properties of lavender essential oil to a wide range of personal care, therapeutic, household, work space and automobile care, and other uses. It is free of synthetics, dyes or harmful chemicals and ready to be an effective part of the natural lifestyle.
From Our Organic Fields
We cultivate Lavandula x intermedia “Grosso” for our hydrosol distillation. This particular variety is a very high essential oil producer and, thus, creates a highly effective multi-use product for a host of cleansing and therapeutic applications. In summer, when the essential oil is a it’s peak, we hand-harvest each plant, load it into the tractor wagon and off it goes to the distillery.
Inside Our Farm Distillery
We use the ancient process of steam distillation to extract the pure essential oil from our flowers. Lavender hydrosol is produced in the same process. Lavender Hydrosol is a natural and (technically speaking) permanent colloidal suspension of a small amount of essential lavender oil in a large volume of water. We neither add-to nor dilute the lavender hydrosol in any way — it should be used straight for full efficacy.
Some of lavender hydrosol’s primary uses are as a completely non-toxic, multi-purpose disinfectant and natural solvent for hard surface cleaning. Throughout the home, from kitchen counter tops, to floors, bathrooms and windows, lavender hydrosol has plentiful uses. For the body, use it to safely clean wounds and soothe irritated skin. For pets, use it to treat “hot spots” and freshen coats in between bathing. It can even be used as a mouth wash for humans and pets alike! For a full list of uses - click here.
