Essential oils and hydrosols

Essential oils are concentrated aromatic liquids obtained from plants by distillation or pression (for citrus species). Essential oils are a complex mixture of volatile and odorous active compounds.
Hydrosols (or hydrolates) are a co-product of essential oil extraction by hydrodistillation. The distillation water, enriched in active and odorous molecules, is the hydrosol. Hydrosols and essential oils are two complementary product of a same process, the first one containing hydrosluble and polar compounds and the other constituted by apolar and more liposoluble compounds. Hydrosols prepared from flowers are also called floral waters.
