Bulgarian Rose harvests occur in late spring and are still hand-picked according to the 300-year old tradition. Once the roses are harvested, they are transported in large sacks to the distiller, where the oil is distilled from the freshly picked blossoms.
A natural byproduct of essential oil distillation, hydrosols are becoming more widely used as a gentle counterpart to traditional esssential oils....
During the process of steam distilling essential oils, the smaller essential oil molecules become suspended in the steam water instead of floating to the top where the essential oils are collected. After the essential oils are collected, the remaining steam water with suspended essential oil molecules is known as the essential oil hydrosol. Hydrsols carry the same energetic imprint and therapeutic properties as essential oils, while being much gentler and in many cases more suitable for applying directly to the skin.
Hydrosols are refreshing and light. They have a slight aroma compared to essential oils. They are great for cooling off, toning the skin, rebalancing emotionally and gently benefiting from the therapeutic properties of the essential oil.
