The magic of hydrosols is perfectly explained by Suzanne Catty who wrote- "Hydrosols contain all of the plant in every drop, just like a hologram. Here we have the water soluble components, the essential-oil molecules, the very fluid that was flowing through the plant cells when the plant was collected."
These steam-distilled plant tonics are used in a variety of ways depending on the plant matter involved, from traditional herbal uses internally (like a ultra-potent and fresh tea) or for the skin, sprayed onto the face and body or used as a steam in a hot shower or bath.
Pine needles are full of vitamins and minerals, including calcium, magnesium, and vitamin C. In fact, pine needle tea has been used to treat scurvy due to its richness in vitamin C. Pine needles are also rich in shikimic acid, which has gotten attention during our time for its ability to prevent the shedding and thus protect from spike proteins. Pine is a decongestant and antibacterial, and supportive to the respiratory and lymph system.
This hydrosol is made from wild-crafted Eastern white pine.
Hydrosols do not always smell directly like the fresh plant matter, unfortunately. Such is the case for pine. There are still notes of pine, but it is not the pure forest fragrance.
Hydrosols are perishable. Keep in a cool, dark place. Conifers have a longer shelf life than other plants, and pine can last a year in appropriate conditions.
