Making a homemade bug spray? Lemongrass Hydrosol is the perfect base! With herbaceous and strong citrus notes, Lemongrass Hydrosol is known (as is Lemongrass Essential Oil) to be an odor that bugs just do not like! In addition to the bug repelling properties, Lemongrass is useful for fungal situations like athletes foot. It can be sprayed on the skin as-is directly from the bottle. It is also a calming aroma.
ABOUT POMPEII STREET HYDROSOLS
When plant material is distilled in a copper still, two products are generally produced, essential oil and hydrosol. Hydrosol is the water part of the distillation and carries an abundance of therapeutic properties. Because this is the water part of the distillation, it is not as concentrated and dilution is not necessary. You can use hydrosols directly out of the mister bottle for an abundance of skin care applications. All our hydrosols are certified organic and cultivated and distilled in the USA for Pompeii Street Aromatherapy. Rose is the only exception since it was distilled from certified organic roses in Bulgaria. The distillation techniques used were to achieve the highest quality, therapeutic hydrosol. Our Hydrosols are NOT byproducts of making essential oil. They have all been distilled exclusively for the hydrosol.
