Hydrosols are soothing toners and skin refreshers used after shaving or whenever the skin needs a little pick-me-up. Usually hydrosols are the by-product of essential oil distillation, but the highest quality hydrosols come from the distillers who steam organically-grown floral and plant material solely to produce hydrosols; such hydrosols are available on a very limited basis. Pristine well water and freshly-harvested plants are transformed into aromatic waters with therapeutic qualities. Hydrosols contain all of the essence of the plant in every drop, just like essential oils but in a milder and more homeopathic form, making them suitable for applications where essential oils would be too strong. True hydrosols are amazingly versatile; a single product to cleanse, tone, rebalance and refresh. Fabulous to use after shaving; but remember, they are not colognes. Hyrdrosols should not be confused with facial sprays, misters or spritzers, which are made by adding essential oils to water using alcohol or a man-made process to mix them.

Besides, after a shave, or during the hot months, it is particularly refreshing to spritz the face with a cool hydrosol.
