A hydrosol is the water distillate formed in the process of steam and/or water distillation. Specifically, in the aromatherapy community, we use the term hydrosol to define the water distillate formed from botanical material that is distilled. This book is an introductory guide to using hydrosols as support tools in wellness plans, in the kitchen, and in skincare. Contains profiles on 34 hydrosols, recipes, formulations, and dosing guidelines to assist new and intermediate users in working with aromatic waters.

This ebook is designed to help the layperson or practitioner explore hydrosols through the lens of a clinically-trained aromatherapist and hydrosol distiller.
