Lavender Oils and Hydrosols
Essential Oil and Hydrosols are the two products that come from the process of steam distillation. Water is heated until it evaporates creating steam. The steam moves through the lavender separating the essential oil from the flowers. The steam is then cooled so as to re-condense it to liquid form. From there oil and water do what they do best: separate! The oil rises and that is our 100% pure, steam distilled lavender essential oil. The water, or hydrosol, contains very little essential oil, but has a variety of uses and is found in products such as the Silk Lotion or All Purpose Cleaner.
