Hydrosols:  aka “Floral Waters”- waters which are separated from essential oils during the water/steam distillation process; hydrosols are aromatic, containing many water soluble fragrant materials found in the plants they are derived from; they hold similar medicinal properties to their essential oil counterpart, but are less concentrated, making them a great choice for all people, especially children.
*Each hydrosol offered is steam & water distilled from fresh harvested plants naturally grown on our farm, Maple Spring Gardens.  A traditional copper alembic still is used, and because it is small, only 2.5 gallons, very little essential oil is extracted.  For this reason, all essential oil is left combined with it's hydrosol. They are distilled from fresh plant material at prime harvest time, thus they are a seasonally produced product and may not be available year round.

*Hydrosols are best kept out of direct sunlight, and refrigerated when not in regular use.  They are usually good for 12-16 months under these conditions.
*Hydrosols are all available in personal use 2oz spray bottles.  If you are interested in larger quantities 16oz, 32oz, & 64oz may be available.  Please contact Sunshine with inquiries.
