Hydrosols & Mists

Hydrosols & Mists

Both these are lovely toning sprays to use after cleansing and also to freshen up in hot or dry weather. Many people ask what is the difference?

Hydrosols are watery by-products of the steam distillation process used to extract pure essential oils. They are very pure - can actually be ingested safely - and contain some of the essential oil extracted. Our hydrosols are Certified Organic.

Mists are made from essential oils, purified water, a solubulizer to help disperse the oils in the water, and possible other ingredients such as aloe, witch hazel, preservative etc. We make 2 toning Mists - Rose and Lavender - as well as special purpose mists - Sacred Self, Sacred Space, Tranquillity Mist and our new antiviral Bush Breathe Travel Spray.

If you want to make your own spray, we suggest you do this with an essential oil or blend, and our Solubulizer, mixed well in equal quantities in any spray bottle, then water added. The Solubulizer (polysorbate 20) includes instructions for this. 

In addition, see our Body Sprays for deodorising purposes.

The following ranges are available for Hydrosols & Mists

Bush Breathe Travel Spray

Bush Breathe Travel Spray

An ideal mist for plane travel and for crowded spaces, or as a room spray - contains the same anti-viral and anti-infectious essential oils as the Bush Breathe Essential Oil Blend.

Spray onto a tissue or makeup pad and tuck this into the collar of pocket (or spray around the head, but be sensitive to other people who may find this invasive, so seek permission first). Avoid spraying in eyes.

Peace Spray

Our beautiful Peace essential oil spray is primarily intended as a room/space or linen spray, but can also be used on the face and body. It's a blend chosen to encourage inner and outer peace, stillness, contentment and balance - based originally on our Pearl soap and Peace soy candle aroma blend. We add a solubulizer.

Spray lightly on linen or in the air or around energy field with a clear intent to bring peace, to bless and to remove any unwanted energy.
