EUCALYPTUS HYDROSOL
EUCALYPTUS HYDROSOL
What is a hydrosol and how is it made?
This eucalyptus hydrosol was made by our dear friend and farmer, KiOhmA of Anarchy Herbals in small batches in an old-fashioned copper still. For an added boost of earth medicine, KiOhmA used freshly fallen rainfall as the water base of this delightfully aromatic spray. Hydrosols are water-based (steam) essential oil preparations. Pure essential oils (those sold in small bottles) are highly concentrated. Hydrosols are less concentrated but still incredibly potent. Hydrosols include essential oils as well as water-based properties, for a well rounded remedy.
How do I use a hydrosol?
Hydrosols are great toners for the skin. Hydrosols make lovely mild perfume for the body or home. Eucalyptus hydrosol specifically has the potent effect of shifting the energy in the home when stuck/stagnant energy needs to be cleared. You can store your hydrosol in the refrigerator in the Summer time for a cooling and uplifting spray for body and home. Hydrosols are also used to make cosmetic/healing lotions and creams.
IMPORTANT: There has not been sufficient research regarding the effects of essential oils on the vital organs when taken internally. For this reason, it is not recommended that you ingest hydrosol or other essential oils. This hydrosol is to be used externally/for bronchial steams and should not be ingested.
Comes in a 4 oz. spray bottle.
