 What is organic floral water used for? What are its benefits and how to use it? 

Renowned for their cosmetic use as tonic, in face care or in massage, floral waters are real beauty treasures. They are particularly suitable for children and people sensitive.

Delicately scented, floral waters are a good alternative to essential oils. 

Indeed, organic floral waters come from the distillation of organic plants and are composed of water with a low aromatic molecule content. Organic floral waters are therefore very soft for the skin.

Who can use them? Their very low concentration of aromatic molecules is appreciated by anyone who is fragile (babies, adults, breastfeeding women, the elderly, etc.). 

On the other hand, floral waters are contraindicated in case of allergy to essential oils and are not recommended for pregnant women and people with a history of seizures.

How can we use them?

In direct application on the face, eyes, mouth, body, hair or scalp!

  • For the beauty of the skin : facial spray, skin tonic, after-shave lotion…
  • For hair beauty : as a conditioner 
  • For the well-being : in a refreshing spray!

For a instant freshness immediate, do not hesitate to place them directly in the refrigerator. Guaranteed boost effect!


 What is the difference between “floral water” and “hydrosol”? 

Often these two terms are taken to mean the same thing, but there is a small subtlety.

According to Patricia Dalmas, specialist in floral waters, the choice of terminology is made according to the part of the plant distilled. 

  • If flowers are distilled, the collected water is called a flower water.
  • If it is the other parts of the plant that are distilled, for example the leaves, seeds, bark... then we collect a hydrosol

Thus, the word hydrolat is more general. 

Often, in scientific aromatherapy, we will rather speak of hydrosol, whereas in cosmetology, we will rather speak of floral water.
