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.
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.
Lemon balm is an old and important medicinal plant. Originally from the Orient, it has been cultivated in our cottage gardens for a long time. Lemon balm contains very little essential oil, which is why it is rare and expensive. Since lemon balm oil has antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral effects, it is one of the most powerful remedies for skin infections such as herpes. In contrast to the essential oil, lemon balm hydrolate is affordable and is very popular and often used in skin care.

Lemon balm water has long been used to support optimal skin function and is therefore used as a facial tonic for cleansing and clarification. Together with other hydrosols such as lavender and sage, it makes an excellent mouthwash. The use in body sprays, steam baths and compresses is also very popular. The delicate fresh scent is also ideal for use as a laundry spray or in the steam iron. Lemon balm water is also said to have a soothing property for indigestion and nausea.
Balm water should not be taken during pregnancy.
