The hydrolates we sell on markets are stabilized with 10-12% pure food grade alcohol. The alcohol may turn a clear hydrosol milky. They come in blue glass bottles of 100 ml with a spray.
On request for B2B we also produce alcohol free hydrolates. The shelf life of alcohol free hydrolates is shorter than those containing alcohol. Depending on the plant material, shelf life of alcohol free hydrolates may vary from 0,5 to 2 years.
Some of our extraordinary and unique fragrances include elder, cow parsley, walnut leaf, willow catkins and water mint. But of course we also produce delicious scents from rosemary, lavender, sage and other well known herbs.
