It is the aromatic water that remains after botanicals are steam distilled. These waters contain small amounts of the essential oil. Hydrosols are clear and look just like water. Aftelier Hydrosols, a famous natural perfumer line, offer wonderful mixes like Cape Chamomile which is a relaxing scent mixed with a sweet musky wine, Cucumber, the most popular, is a cool crisp green flavor, Lime a refreshing lift with a citrus aroma and flavor, plus many more to choose from and new one's being introduced all the time.

Hydrosols have many uses and can be mixed in skin creams, in drinks (even alcoholic beverages like Martinis!), and even in food.
