Cleaning With Hydrosols

Cleaning with Hydrosols

Lately, I’ve started cleaning with hydrosols. My two favorites to clean with are Lavender hydrosol and Peppermint hydrosol.

I always have hydrosols around, as I use them for so many different things, and cleaning with them just felt like a natural progression.

I put them in a spray bottle and clean the counter tops, stove top, bathroom sinks, windows…any surface I would be comfortable using water on.

I even sprayed them on the couches in Sarasota to refresh and cleanse the living room!  I also clean my floors with them.

Hydrosols are safe for babies, children and animals, which makes them especially nice to clean with!

Aromatics International sells organic high-quality hydrosols.

I love hydrosols. Use them the more I get to know them. Manuka and Sandalwood hydrosols in equal parts are very good deodorant.

Love hydrosols and love cleaning with them, the house Always smells soooo good afterwards. With a crawling baby and two dogs I never have to worry about yucky chemicals ending up on hands…or paws, lol

Would you use hydrosols the same way you use EOs? I had made up a mix, and combined it with 2 cups of water. I found this in an aromatherapy book.

Hydrosols are used differently, here is a blog post I wrote about them:
