Hydrolate, also called hydrosol, floral water, floral water, or distilled water, is a by-product of refining essential oils. This water flows through the distillation apparatus several times. On the way, it absorbs many water-soluble components from the plant material used.
The resulting water contains many of the same properties as essential oils but in a more diluted form. They also smell amazing.
