Q1：What is hydrosols?
A: In deep aromatherapy, do you know that in addition to the use of essential oils, hydrosol is also a great choice? Pure dew is not as simple as adding essential oil and water. The mild pure dew can be used externally or internally. It can be said to be widely used. Let us first understand pure dew!
What is Hydrosol?
Hydrosol is the substance obtained when extracting essential oil by distillation. By distillation, it will condense into a liquid with natural chemical molecules in the process. Because most of the lipophilic chemical molecules will dissolve in essential oils, they are hydrophilic. Stronger chemical molecules are almost soluble in pure dew, and the organic acids contained in them also have anti-inflammatory effects.
Some videos on the Internet will add essential oils to the water, saying that this is pure dew, which is incorrect! Generally speaking, 100cc of pure dew contains about 0.05 to 0.2ml of essential oil.
Hydrolates is often referred to as flower water in the market, but it is not a very correct statement, because pure dew does not necessarily come from flower-like plants, such as juniper berries, and juniper dew can also be extracted.
