hydrosols, are the fragrant waters that remain behind in much less concentration from steam distilling plant materials in preparing essential oils. Hydrosols contain all of the essence of the plant in every drop, just like essential oils but in a milder form; making them suitable for all manner of applications where essential oils would be too strong. Our Hydrosols are 5x concentrations. That means they are 5 times more concentrated than regular hydrosols. GERMAN CHAMOMILE, also known as Matricaria chamomilla is an annual flowering plant of the composite family Asteraceae. The flowers bloom in early to midsummer, and have a strong, aromatic smell. It can be found near populated areas all over Europe and temperate Asia, often growing near roads, around landfills, and in cultivated fields as a weed, because the seeds require open soil to survive. AROMATIC DESCRIPTION: Strong, sweet. COLLECTION METHOD: Steam Distillation. PLANT PART: Flower. CAUTIONS: For external use ONLY; Always dilute our hydrosols to normal concentration before using by mixing with filtered water since using concentrated hydrosols may result in slight itching due to the concentration; Avoid contact with eyes, inner ears, and sensitive areas.
