Elderflowers are beautiful white flowers that bloom on the leafy Sambucus nigra shrub. Both elderberries and elderflowers are known for their herbal benefits and have been widely used for centuries.
Our Organic Elderflower Hydrosol is meticulously produced by expert artisanal distillers who distill specifically for the hydrosol. It is not distilled as a byproduct of essential oil production. Distilled using copper alembic stills, our Organic Elderflower Hydrosol does not have the unpleasant "still note" that hydrosols can have when they are produced using stainless steel equipment. Distillation using copper stills may also help the hydrosol be more resistant to microbial growth.
Organic Elderflower Hydrosol possesses a delicate yet sweet, fruity, floral aroma. It is highly versatile and can be used for a variety of applications on its own or as an ingredient in a wide range of formulations. Organic Elderflower Hydrosol is refreshing and rejuvenating and is well suited for inclusion in facial toners, body sprays, natural fragrances and other water-based personal care, holistic aromatherapy and home fragrancing products.
Suzanne Catty, author of Hydrosols: The Next Aromatherapy Book by Suzanne Catty indicates that the hydrosol can promote a sense of calm.
As with all of our organic ingredients, our Organic Elderflower Hydrosol is certified organic by CCOF, a USDA-accredited certifying agency.

We ship our hydrosols in plastic to avoid breakage, but hydrosols should be transferred to glass as soon as possible. Like essential oils, hydrosols should be stored in a cool dry place. The shelf life of hydrosols is up to 2 years when they are stored properly. Our Organic Elderflower Hydrosol does not contain any preservatives. Hydrosols can be stored in the refrigerator.
*Typical Shelf Life begins on the date of manufacture and is defined as the typical shelf life of an ingredient when it is stored and handled properly. The Typical Shelf Life is offered as a general guideline. It should not be considered to be an expiration date. Many ingredients are usable beyond the stated date, especially when stored and handled very carefully.
