Sacred Blue Lily Hydrosol (1 oz)
'Flower water' isn't an accurate definition because hydrosols do not come just from flowers any more than essential oils come only from flowers. Roots, bark, branches, wood, needles and leaves, even fruit and seeds can produce both oils and hydrosols.
Hydrosols are the condensate water coproduced during the steam- or hydro-distillation of plant material for aromatherapeutic purposes. Usually the distillation is undertaken to obtain the essential oils contained in the plant material, but occasionally the distillation is undertaken specifically to produce the plant water that results.
Hydrosols contain all of the plant in every drop, just like a hologram. Here we have the water-soluble components, the essential-oil molecules, the very fluid that was flowing through the plant cells when the plant was collected. It's all there in a matrix of water that is so much more than water, one of the most recognized holographic substances in healing.
This hydrosol is made from the whole plant of the Nymphaea caerulea, often referred to as Sacred Blue Lily of the Nile. Typically, 3-7 dropperfuls are mixed with a cup of tea or glass of wine.
