Rosemary Hydrosol - Awaken Thy Senses - Full Moon Samhain Distillation
Rosemary Hydrosol* stimulates circulations and is beneficial for normal to oily skin. Hydrosols, also known as Hydrolats, are lovingly referred to as the co-product of the distillation process, whereby plant material is immersed in water, (in, above, or both) and heated slowly, allowing the plants’ potent + odiferous molecules to rise up within the steam, to then cool, fall and condense to a liquid state. Hydrosols may be used as a compress, sitz bath, linen spray or facial mist.
Hydrosols have historical uses dating as far back as 1527 where in grand households and castles was a Still Room, where Kitchen Witching was alive and well, and country women were distilling spirituous waters, infusing teas, brewing decoctions and creating medicaments for the family. Still Rooms were a very important part of the ancient household.
