Hydrosol Safety Information

Although hydrosols are far less concentrated than essential oils, it is prudent to treat hydrosols with respect and follow sensible safety precautions. Read these guidelines for more information.

  • Do not take hydrosols internally without consultation from a qualified aromatherapy practitioner who has formal and in-depth training and experience in hydrosol usage.

  • Follow the suggested recommendations for proper storage and handling.

  • If you are pregnant, epileptic, have liver damage, have cancer, or have any other medical problem, discuss your health situation with a qualified aromatherapy practitioner.

  • Remember that hydrosols, essential oils, tinctures and any other herbs and natural aromatics could potentially interact with pharmaceuticals.

  • Though hydrosols are generally considered safe for topical use, everyone is different. It is sensible to conduct a skin patch test when trying a hydrosol for the first time.

  • As with essential oils, the rule of thumb is that less is more. Immediately prior to use, consider diluting your hydrosol further so that you a) use the least amount of hydrosol needed to achieve your desired result and b) keep from using up your hydrosols as quickly.
