What is hydrosol ?
Lavender hydrosol is a product in the distillation of lavender. The
flowers are placed in a stainless steel container, the lid is sealed.
Steam is then injected into the container. A hole in the lid is connected
to a condenser. The condenser is a series of tubes which are surrounded
by cold water so that the steam and the oil that are liberated from
the lavender condenses into water and essential oil. The oil separates
out and is collected for sale as essential oil. The remaining water
contains fully emulsified essential oil and is called a hydrosol.
