Shiso Botanical Water

Feed your skin with a Japanese Delicacy

Shiso Botanical Water will awaken your senses with hints of mint, citrus, cinnamon, clove, anise, and nutmeg. This botanical water is for anyone who is committed to helping their skin look simply beautiful.



While hydrosol is popular in the beauty industry, Shiso Botanical Water is lesser-known.

Shiso is a leafy garnish used to compliment many Japanese, Vietnamese and Korean dishes – it’s in the mint family and tastes like basil with grassy undertones. It comes with many health properties that could be beneficial to the revival of your skin.

Because we farm our distillates in small batches, we only yield a limited supply of Shiso botanical water, so don’t wait to get your hands on some. We exclusively grow purple shiso. The red and purple pigments fall into the same family as those found in fruits and vegetables that are also red, just like blackberries and cranberries. They are flavonoids like lycopene found in red peppers and resveratrol found in grapes known as anthocyanins, which are antioxidants that can offer your skin various health benefits.

Benefits of Shiso Botanical Water

There are many reasons to try Shiso hydrosol on your skin. Our natural botanical water may help to soothe inflamed skin. You’ll also find a ton of vitamins, with high levels of C, A and K. It also contains a significant amount of several B-complex vitamins. These health properties are particularly helpful for combination and sensitive skin. Most of us know what it’s like to experience great skin again after struggling with bad skin for a while. Shiso hydrosol can help to turn your skin around so that you can experience a healthy glow again.

There’s little more alluring than plump, hydrated skin. Shiso hydrosol is excellent for keeping any moisture locked into the skin, keeping your face and neck nice and hydrated throughout the day. Another reason why Shiso compliments the skin so well is that it’s less concentrated than an essential oil, making it a lot easier for your skin to absorb. If botanical waters fascinate you, we also offer lavender flower water and cucumber water.

Making Shiso Botanical Water

We take painstaking care to distill our Shiso hydrosol in small batches on our farm and are in control of the process by hand from seed to bottle. This way, we can be sure it’s as natural as it can be. Shiso botanical water is your skin’s best friend and will keep you firm, hydrated and refreshed all day. Shiso may really be able to make a difference to your skin, keeping it calm and rejuvenated even if you have experienced issues with it in the past.


What is Shisho?

Shisho is an ornamental purple or green leafy plant that falls into the mint family. The green leaves are far more common than purple, which is why the purple shisho we use in our distillate and harvest on our farm is beneficial to the skin. Traditionally, shisho is used as a refreshing garnish on various Japanese dishes. You’ll notice that shisho typically has an aroma of cloves and cinnamon. You may also get notes of nutmeg and anise.

How to Grow Shisho

If you want to grow your own shisho, it's essential to have plenty of sun with a bit of shade. You'll also need to plant it in well-drained soil that's fertile. Shisho is grown similarly to other herbs, especially basil. Once it has had time to root in the soil, make sure to pinch the tips for bushier plants. If you plant and grow in the summertime, make sure that it is getting enough water. You can also plant shisho with a combination of soil and bark. Pick any leaves that grow throughout summer, and harvest the seeds and flowering tops toward the end of the summer season so that you can plant it again in the springtime.

What is Shisho Leaf?

The shisho leaf is the part of the plant that we use the most in the distilling process. When you are growing shisho, you may find that the plant disperses and survives in smaller groupings. If your shisho plant is getting enough sunlight, shade, and water, then the supply of leaves should last the summer.

What are the Benefits of Using Shisho on Your Skin?

There are many reasons why we recommend using shisho hydrosol on your skin. As well as being antibacterial, shisho hydrosol may also help to soothe inflamed skin. This is a good, practical option for sensitive skin and other combination skin types. Shisho hydrosol may also contain antioxidant properties, as well as the ability to protect the skin from losing moisture. Because shisho hydrosol is less concentrated than its essential oil counterpart, it can be easily absorbed into the skin. Due to the number of natural minerals and vitamins that shisho contains, it’s a popular choice for helping to improve your skin’s condition in general.
