Roman Chamomile Hydrosol

Hydrosols have quite a few different names – they are also known as hydroflorates, hydrolats, distillates, floral waters and flower waters. While the term “flower waters” has sometimes been applied to these products, it has also been used by some suppliers to refer to an inferior type of product made by simply adding small amounts of essential oil to water. “Flower waters” made by this method do not have the same desirable properties as true hydrosols. All of these terms mean the same thing but be aware that some suppliers have used the term “flower water” incorrectly to denote a product produced by adding a little essential oil to ordinary water; such products are not true hydrosols. Our true Roman Chamomile Hydrosol is produced here in the USA. The aroma is quite like that of our Roman Chamomile Essential Oil but, to me, with a hint of the smell of a grassy meadow.

Hydrosols are produced during the steam distillation of essential oils. Plant material is placed in the still along with water and heat is applied to produce steam. This steam extracts the oils from the plant material and is then condensed (liquefied). The essential oils float to the top of the water and are separated from the water. After separating out the pure essential oil, the water that remains contains traces of essential oil along with some non-volatile constituents that were also extracted; this is the hydrosol.

Roman Chamomile Hydrosol is very soothing and relaxing. It soothes rashes and makes an excellent toner for dry skin; it is sometimes combined with Witch Hazel for this latter use.

Roman Chamomile is a small, fragrant, hairy-stemmed perennial herb with white daisy-like flowers. Its Latin name is Chamaemelum nobile or Anthemis nobilis, and it is also known as “English Chamomile” or “True Chamomile.” Long considered a wonderfully comforting herb, Roman Chamomile Flower Water has many soothing applications for both the mind and the body.

Note that Flower Waters / Hydrosols have a shorter shelf life than essential oils, so we always buy in small batches and replenish our stock often. To extend the shelf life of your Roman Chamomile Hydrosol, store in a cool dark area or refrigerate. Spritzing a Hydrosol that has been chilled can feel extra refreshing.

Yo!: Some rather unscrupulous companies sell fake flower water – they just add a few drops of essential oil or even a fragrance oil to water – not nice!  We always do our best to do the right thing – our Artisan Aromatics Roman Chamomile Hydrosol and all of our Hydrosols are quite real and I love them!
