HydroSouls are simple yet powerful plant waters that have been used
for millennia to bring harmony and serenity to skin and spirit.
If you’re anything like us, you probably go through alotof HydroSoul, especially during the Summer months. Irritated, red, sensitive and congested skin becomes calmer, softer and more luminous when you incorporate HydroSoul into your daily skin care protocol.
• Hydrate, tone, plump and balance pH
• Calm, soothe, quiet and cool
• Feed the skin water-soluble micronutrients and therapeutic compounds from the plant
• Support the skin’s hydrolipid barrier & help drive oil-based products deeper into the skin, making skin care more effective
HydroSouls embody the soul of the plant.
Hydrosols are distilled plant water.
The process of distilling for hydrosols is a slow, gentle one.
Our sourcing partners are family farms in northeastern Washington State. They cultivate, harvest then distill our favorite plant allies to create our HydroSoul offerings with care and intention throughout every step of the process.
Plants are harvested during their peak. Only fresh plant material and well water is used in the hand-hammered copper stills in order to capture the plants’ cellular water.
A flame is lit under the copper stills and the water is brought to a gentle simmer.
As the steam rises, it breaks open the glands in the plant that contain the aromatic molecules and they rise to the top of the hat, travel through the swan neck, and spiral down through the condenser coil.
The condenser coil is immersed in cool water, and as the traveling aroma-molecules reach this stage, the temperature change shocks them from vapor into solid, or as we like to think of it, from spirit to matter.
The substance that emerges contains water-soluble compounds from the plant, cellular water from within the plant and micro amounts of essential oils.
You can always choose a HydroSoul simply because you are drawn to its scent, your skin or spirit calls for a particular plant, or because you enjoy the way it pairs with your favorite Oil Serum. Unless you have an allergy or a scent-aversion, there is no wrong choice when selecting a HydroSoul.
Dermal Adaptogen. Helps support and harmonize sebaceous glands, making it a perfect ally for skin that is oily, dry, and combination.

“I have been misting myself with Frankincense Hydrosoul while doing stretching and yoga in the sun. It really takes the whole experience to a new level. Utilizing all of my senses heightens all the serenity and calm.” - Shirley
We love this one, it helps clear systemic heat in the body and face and when applied with our oil serums it can help minimize the appearance of scars while smoothing the skin.
“Douglas Fir HydroSoul is very seasonal. It is only available when the Douglas Fir trees produce the sap and resin in the tips, small branches and needles, and this only happens when the temperatures get colder. The tree resin is produced as a vital and protective substance. Doug Fir HydroSoul offers this same vitalizing, protective activity on the skin and psyche. It’s truly magic in a bottle.” - Evan
