Hydrosols, often (mistakenly) called "waters" (e.g. "Lavender Water") are produced during the steam-distillation process. They are comprised of distilled water containing microscopic droplets of essential oil which are too small to efficiently separate from the re-condensed steam. Once the water has evaporated, the essential oil aroma comes through. Before evaporation, the water has a "honey" and/or "grassy" aroma; this is due to water-soluble plant compounds coming through in the distillation process. If a hydrosol is missing this aroma, it is not a real hydrosol, but more likely tap water with essential oil and a dispersant added.

1L refill bottles are also available.
Hydrosols can be used in any light freshening task. Some examples:
