Distilling lavender with spring water makes magic

Lavender Flower Water is made by hand in small batches on our farm. You’ll love how it feels on your face and skin! We hand-harvest lavender and distill this delicate elixir with painstaking attention to detail.

Our flower water is an herbal distillate, also known as a hydrosol. Hydrosols are a common ingredient in natural skincare products and natural room sprays. It can be used as a skin toner and a base facial spray and body and hair mist.  A few spritzes add a fresh clean scent to rooms and linens.

Besides the aromatic nature, hydrosols are packed with beneficial properties rich in antioxidants. These are relatively the same properties as essential oils in a less concentrated form. Since hydrosols are naturally the same pH as skin, when applied, it helps to restore the skins natural pH without chemicals.

Lavender hydrosol can be blended with essential oils for added aromatherapeutic benefits. We recommend combining lavender, rosemary, and tulsi oils for to this hydrosol for an earthy and herbal bouquet.

The science:

The distillation of plant material produces two by-products: essential oils, and hydrosols. Hydrosols are the end result of steam distillation. (Think back to when you learned the water cycle in grade school.) Water is heated to create steam, in a still or double boiler of sorts. The hot steam rises and permeates the plant material. The aromatic water molecules are carried by steam into a condenser, surrounded by cold water. The cold water causes the steam to condense into a liquid resulting in a hydrosol.

This process of distillation has been used for thousands of years for the creation of herbal medicines and tonics (and booze).

Due to the way a hydrosol is created, the scent is pure and does not smell like traditional lavender buds or essential oils. The scent is a sweet, grassy, woody and earthy aroma reminiscent of a beautiful fresh day outdoors.

  • Spritz on your face after cleansing and before applying moisturizer, follow with Facial Oil

Lavender Flower Water FAQs

How to Make Lavender Oil

To make a lavender oil yourself, you need to purchase either an alembic or a still. You have the choice of either gently boiling or steaming the plant material to distill it. Doing either or is fine as the results are similar. You can also do both gently boil the lavender and steam the plant material in the same process. The oil forms as a result of having a large amount of plant material at high temperatures coming into contact with cold temperatures during the distilling process. The end result is water and essential oil mixed together. The top of the distillate is essential oil.

What is Lavender Flower Water?

Lavender hydrosol, or 'lavender flower water' as it is also known, is the byproduct of distilled fresh lavender flowers and stems. While the end result contains essential oils to a small degree, it is much less concentrated. Lavender Flower Water evokes a much more subtle scent than lavender essential oil. While Lavender Flower water may smell like lavender essential oil, you also may get a hint of green grass, and fresh outdoor scent in there as well. This is because Lavender Flower Water can also include plant material that you don’t find in lavender essential oil. While Lavender Flower Water comes with many benefits that can also be found in essential oils, they are much softer and more subtle in both application and aroma.

How Does Skin Benefit from Lavender Flower Water?

There are many reasons why we recommend using Lavender Flower Water on your skin. As well as possessing antibacterial qualities, Lavender Flower Water may also help to soothe inflamed skin. This is a good, practical option for sensitive skin and other combination skin types. Lavender Flower Water may also contain antioxidant properties, as well cleansing and providing a humectant to skin from nature. Because Lavender Flower Water is less concentrated than its essential oil counterpart, it can be easily absorbed into the skin. Using Lavender Flower Water as a toner after cleansing and before moisturizing is the best way to use it on the skin. Due to the number of natural minerals and vitamins that lavender contains, it’s a popular choice for helping to improve your skin’s condition in general.
