STEAM’D Distillates is a small-batch steam distillation operation creating all natural floral and herbal hydrosols. All products I make are inspired by, sourced, harvested and processed from the natural environment in which I move or are grown with love in my garden (or the gardens of friends in my movement community)
What is hydrosol? Hydrosol or Hydrolat (sometimes called floral water) is the aqueous product of steam distillation that carries both the hydrophilic properties of the plant solution (soluble plant parts that bind to the water molecules) and microscopic droplets of essential oil in suspension. They are typically made from floral or herbal flowers and plant material as a by-product of making essential oils, but in the case of Steam'd Distillates, I am distilling specifically to create the hydrosol so all of the essential oil carries over into the product.
Hydrosols are lighter in scent and intensity than pure essential oils so they can be used where other options might be too harsh. Depending on the hydrosol, it can also contain other benefits including antimicrobial and anti-fungal properties that make them a refreshing natural option for facial toner, make-up remover, mat cleaner, foot sprays - just to name a few.
