This week on the blog, although aromatic and especially known to enhance your dishes or drinks, rosemary, more precisely in the form of a hydrosol in this case, is intended to be a purifying and regulating active for skin with imperfections, but also useful in preventing dandruff and hair loss. Here, let's call it, dandruff-nator !
How do you get a hydrosol ?
Floral water or hydrosol, it's the same thing. It is a liquid treatment obtained by the distillation of leaves / plants / flowers with water vapor. Floral waters are much less concentrated and are said to be suitable for all profiles, even pregnant women and children. A hydrosol is obtained during the process of extracting an essential oil, and is extracted at the end of the process, in the fourth tank (decanter) where the essential oil, lighter than water, detaches and is filtered to leave only the hydrosol. Hydrosol is much less fragrant and concentrated than essential oil, but that said, it is loaded with water-soluble molecules that your skin and scalp are eager to enjoy.
