|Just like essential oils Gold Hydrosouls are excellent multi taskers, but first lets talk about their potency . Hydrosols can be as much as 20-30 times more potent then a cup of tea yet gentler then an essential oil. Essential oils are the volatile oils of the plant, which are not actually oils, they are terpenes. we love essential oils here at Narayan Beauty we equally love the Hydrosoul which are the aqueous waters of the plant that can be obtained through several types of distillations, there is the Hydro distillation which would be akin to boiling your vegetables and capturing the sweat of the plant that arises, or steam distillation which would be akin to steaming your vegetables and capturing the sweat of the plant.
At Narayan Beauty we use a hydro/steam distillation, this requires more plant matter which delivers a very potent hydrosol, all of Narayan Hydrosols are grown organically in her garden, the Pinon Pine is a wild harvest which is ethically sourced by her and her crew.
Back to there uses and ways for you to be your own alchemist and enjoy these healing medicinal botanical waters.

a Note from Narayan...
Loves labor really shows its self in the garden, every plant has a love story it wants to share with you. All 3 of these allies have healing to share and whispers to reveal. The Patchouli reminds me ever so gently to slow down find your place that you belong, so you too can grow healthy and strong, Lemon balm tells tales of joyful lightness of being and to remember that skip in your step you once had as a child before your innocents was lost to the world. Chocolate and mint, it is one plant that feels like a double dose of yummy goodness you want to share with all.
My garden is a space i love to share, anyone who visits gets a garden tour, it brings me such joy to share the healing a garden offers up. As a healer and an empath my relationship with the plant kingdom is deep soothing and an exchange of loving energy. It loves me back as i tend to its needs, each plant offers up a unique frequency of love that touches every part of my being .
i hope you too can feel the love each gold hydrosoul offers up.
be well, be beautiful
