The name Chamomile comes from the Greek meaning “apple on the ground” in reference to the plant’s apple-like aroma. Historically this plant was used by ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans, chamomile was also one of the nine sacred herbs of the Saxons. It has been utilized for various types of remedies and personal care ingredients for thousands of years. Best known for its ability to promote relaxation, chamomile hydrosol is wonderful for facial and body applications and can be helpful with minor skin irritations.
Hydrosols are a great alternative to essential oils and have a similar aroma but with the added benefit of being water-based so they can be used in products where oil doesn't work as well like cleaning products etc. For those not familiar with hydrosols, they are a byproduct of steam-distilling essential oils. They contain many similar benefits and also other benefits that are water soluble and not found in the essential oils themselves. When essential oils are distilled two things are produced an essential oil on the top and a hydrosol on the bottom. These two are later separated into hydrosol and essential oil.
In some products for hair care or a lotion, you might want to use both an essential oil and a hydrosol for a wider range of both water and oil-soluble compounds and aromas. They can be added to your creams and lotions at 30% - 50% in the water phase, or in an aromatic face or body spritz. They are an excellent addition to linen sprays and may also be added to make a fragrant and soothing hot bath.
