Hydrosols are an aqueous product of steam/hydro distillation. Period. They are not spring water with added essential oils. Quality hydrosols are produced by distilling fresh plant material.

Straight from the Artisan Distiller to you. This hydrosol is distilled from organic Frankincense Resins. Truly unique. Frankincense is excellent for skin. We use it externally for a lovely facial toner.

 Stability & shelf Life:

Unknown. The odor begins to diminish after 18 months, but the properties seem to be consistent up to two years of more depending on storage.
 
Applications:
Floral waters, also known as Hydrosols, make excellent toners. Usually containing a very small amount of essential oil and water soluble extracts of the plant. A toner is the first step in adding moisture to the skin's surface.
