    Benefits of Hydrosol— Serenity in Skin & Spirit

     

    What is a Hydrosol

    Hydrosols are gentle remedies that offer an immense array of benefits to all skin. These simple, gentle yet powerful plant waters have been used for millennia to bring harmony and serenity to skin and spirit. Daily use of a hydrosol tones, hydrates and plumps skin while balancing pH and delivering therapeutic compounds from the plant.


    Why Use Hydrosols?

    Proper Hydration

     

    Hydrosols are one of our best allies in the world of skin care because they are the missing link in hydration. Many people who use a face oil or serum alone are often unsatisfied with the results or feel they also need a moisturizer. This is because applying oil is only half of the equation. Proper hydration and moisturizing is attained with the union of oil and water. Integrating a hydrosol into your daily protocol completely transforms the efficacy of your skin care, and elevates it to the next level.

    Hydrosol vs. HydroSoul

    While hydrosol is the generic term to describe the plant water created through distillation, we choose to use the name HydroSoul because we feel it captures the true nature of what a hydrosol really is. The soul of the plant. Since hydrosol can refer to a plant water that is likely a byproduct, reconstituted, and/or distilled from dried plant material, we wanted a word that represented the truth, beauty, and potency of our artisan distilled hydrosols, and that would communicate that they are something real, transformative and profound. HydroSoul.


    How to Use Hydrosols


    How to: The Basics 

     

    Incorporate a HydroSoul into your daily ritual by pairing it with an oil serum. This re-creates the protective barrier the skin creates for itself and acts as an antioxidant treatment, toner and moisturizer in one. Ideally, this combination is used morning and night.

    Using a HydroSoul at any step (or every step) of your skin care ritual will enhance and amplify the benefit of anything you use with it. At evanhealy, we use HydroSoul with Cleansers, Oil Serums, Moisturizers, Masks, Cosmetics and simply throughout the day to uplift and rejuvenate both skin and spirit. The more HydroSoul you use, the calmer, softer and more luminous the skin becomes.

    Hydrosol Distillation

    Soul of the Plant

     

    The process of distilling for hydrosols is a slow, gentle one. For every gallon created, 8 pounds of plant material is cultivated, harvested and funneled into alembic copper stills to be distilled over the course of several hours. The substance that emerges contains water-soluble compounds from the plant, cellular water from within the plant, and micro amounts of essential oils. These beautiful, potent plant waters truly embody the soul of the plant — that’s why we call our hydrosol offerings HydroSouls.
