Hydrosol is a chemistry term originating from the latin word hydro (water) and
sol (solution). Plant material (flowers, leaves, seeds, needles, bark, roots,
wood, or fruits) are steam distilled and can produce both oils and hydrosols.
Hydrosols are the condensate water coproduced during the hydro-distillation of
plant material for aroma-therapeutic purposes. Hydrosols have b...een likened to a hologram of the plant, the
water-soluable components and the essential oil molecules, the very fluid that
was flowing through the plant at harvest. Hydrosols contain therapeutic
properties that would be associated with the usual use of specific botanicals
in phtyto-therapy, delivered in the homeopathic matrix of each unique
Kainoa Farms uses our distilled hydrosols both pure and as a base
with added essential oils in our line of therapeutic sprizers. All of the
botanicals used in our distillations are sustainably harvested from chemical
free sources or grown without chemical pesticides, herbacides, or fertilizers.
Botanicals are transported and stored to maintain the therapeutic integrity and
are processed in small batches.
