Birch Hydrolate Organic 100ml
We have been cultivating organic flowers and herbs on our Felslindenhof for many years.
We put our own tailor-made steam still into operation in 2014. This enables us to process the freshly harvested plants immediately, i.e. to produce organically certified hydrosols of the highest quality ourselves. Without additives or preservatives.
Hydrolates, formerly also called plant waters, floral waters or aromatic waters, are a valuable by-product of steam distillation. They form as condensate when the water vapor cools and are mixed with the water-soluble components of the plant, while the oil contains the fat-soluble, volatile components. Since the effect of the hydrosols is milder, they can be applied directly to the skin without hesitation.
These waters, so highly valued by our grandparents' generation, are currently experiencing a true renaissance.
The birch gives its water a light scent. Its effect is astringent, which is why it is used particularly in hair and aftershave lotions. Birch hydrolate can also be used to detoxify the body and to treat skin irritations. Also known is its use to promote urination.
