Lavender Hydrosol – L. angustifolia Avice Hill

$8.00$110.00

Hydrosol from the Avice Hill cultivar has the piquant honey aroma typical of most angustifolia cultivars. This cultivar’s hydrosol is however individualised with fruity hints of apricots and the musky wood undertow of cedar. Lavender hydrosols are gently soothing, mildly antiseptic and relaxing. 

Hydrosols are the pure co-product, with essential oil, of distillation processes. Hydrosol has both minute residues of essential oil and of itself more of the soluble chemistry of the plant and therefore has its own chemistry and aroma with its own unique value of use. Lavender hydrosol is valuable as a personal misting spray, its acidic nature (< 4.5 pH) allowing it to work gently with the acid mantle of the hair and skin to freshen, relax, hydrate and tone. Hydrosol is also a beautiful inclusion in skin and hair care formulations, for handcrafted soaps and is also a natural deodorizer and cleaner.

We do not add any preservatives.  If kept well we have found our lavender hydrosol has a shelf life of well beyond 2 years from its distillation.  When a hydrosol is past its best a discoloration occurs, a microbial plume will usually appear, the smell will go off and acidity is reduced.  When these indicators are present it is best to discard the hydrosol.  If personal sensitivities arise cease use immediately.
