About flower water-
Hydrosol is also known as flower water comes from the process of steam distilling plants, herbs or resins. Essential oils and hydrosols are both a product of plant distillation but the essential oil is the very concentrated oil and hydrosols are the water-based by-product with a smaller amount of essential oil suspended within it.
The aromatic water has all the same therapeutic properties as essential oils just not as concentrated, so flower waters don’t need to be diluted and can be directly on the skin.
