Hydrosol: What Is It & How Do I Use It?

What Is A Hydrosol?

Our Hydrosol is composed of the same element you are: good ol' H2O. Scientifically speaking, "Hydrosol" is just a fancy term for “plant water." What makes this multipurpose facial and body toning spray so versatile, yet beneficial for your skin? The water is steam distilled with essential oils. When the steam from the distilled water passes through the certified organic plants, it "holds on" to the oils' nutrients from each ingredient. These essential oils are then scooped off the top of the steam and turned back into water.

Steam distilled plant essential oils still contain all of the plants’ properties like naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that have been clinically proven to benefit your body, although in minute amounts. The essential oils are highly diluted in water (and our special blend of castor and coconut oils) which effectively makes them less sensitizing than traditional essential oils applied directly to the skin. (Please don't apply essential oils without a carrier oil and always patch test a new skincare product on the inside of your forearm before applying new topicals to more sensitive areas like your face or pubic area). 

The result: a soothing, moisturizing multipurpose toning spray that can be used—quite literally—from head to toe. With natural antiseptic, antibacterial, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties, our Hydrosol may be made of roses, but it has plenty of benefits that won’t just make you smell like bouquet. Keep reading for six simple ways to incorporate the versatilye Hydrosol into your daily routine.


Under the guidance of several medical professionals, arduous research, and culling case studies, we discovered that fruit and flower extracts can protect your skin's moisture barrier and help your body’s natural ability to relieve symptoms associated with these uncomfortable and unexpected vaginal issues like yeast infections, or bacterial vaginosis


How Do I Use Hydrosol?

Hydrosol is a multipurpose must-have for face and body acne, vulvar irritation and odors stemming from pH imbalance. 

Hold the bottle it a few inches from irritated or inflamed skin and spray away! Just don't spray it directly on broken skin. Keep it on your nightstand, throw it in your gym bag, and keep a spare in your bathroom for a quick and soothing spritz post period, shower, sweat or sex.
