  • Description

    Floral water, also known as hydrosol, is a versatile byproduct of the steam distillation process used to extract essential oils. It contains the water-soluble components of the plant and a mild concentration of essential oil, which gives it a subtle fragrance and beneficial properties akin to the essential oils but in a less concentrated form. This makes floral waters suitable for direct application on the skin, offering gentle therapeutic benefits without the need for dilution.

  • Uses

    Melissa water, derived from the steam distillation of Melissa officinalis (Lemon Balm), is highly valued in several industries for its therapeutic and aromatic properties. In the cosmetics industry, it is particularly prized for its soothing effects on the skin, making it a common ingredient in skincare products aimed at calming irritation and reducing redness. Its mild astringent properties also make it beneficial for cleansing and toning routines, promoting a healthier complexion.

    In the wellness and aromatherapy sectors, Melissa water is used for its calming effects to alleviate stress and promote relaxation. Its gentle, lemon-scented aroma is used in diffusers and personal care products to enhance mood and provide a sense of well-being.

    Furthermore, Melissa water is employed in the food and beverage industry as a flavoring agent due to its subtle lemony flavor, enhancing herbal teas and specialty beverages with its refreshing taste. Its natural composition and soothing properties also make it a suitable ingredient in natural remedies and herbal supplements, supporting digestive health and relaxation.

    Overall, Melissa water’s versatility and beneficial properties make it a valuable commodity across various sectors, particularly those focused on natural and holistic products.
