Q: Do your Aromatherapy flower waters contain any alcohol ?
A: No, we do not use alcohol in the creation of our Floral Waters. Also, here I should make a distinction between flower waters and hydrosols. The terms are often used interchangeably but sometimes mean different things. Hydrosols are always the by-product of the steam distillation of essential oils and are often called flower waters.
Some flower waters are made with essential oils, a dispersant and distilled water. These "manufactured" flower waters often have similar but slightly different properties and quite often have a stronger aroma. Both are quite gentle and are nourishing to the skin. You should note that the shelf life of both hydrosols and manufactured flower waters are quite short, usually less than 1 year. We carry the manufactured flower waters that we make ourselves.
