The Benefits of Floral Water
What is floral water?
Floral waters, hydrolates, are obtained through the process of steam distillation of plants, a process that is also applied to obtain essential oils. Thus, they contain a concentration of 2-3% micromolecules of essential oil, the rest of the composition being microbiologically pure water. The great advantage of floral waters is that they retain exactly the properties of the plant from which they come.
