A Handbook for Aromatherapists and Other Practitioners
Lydia Bosson, Jonathan Hinde
This is the complete therapeutic guide to working with hydrosols. Hydrosols, also known as floral waters, are produced at the same time as essential oils through steam distillation of plants. Some of them, such as rose water or the hydrosol of orange blossoms, have been known for centuries while others have only recently become available. Therapeutic use of hydrosols has become more and more popular over the last ten years in health care, cosmetics, spa treatments and many other areas of beauty and well-being.
Translated from the original French, this book gives a complete overview of theory and practice, including detailed descriptions, testimonials, recipes for all kind of disorders. It includes information on how hydrosols can be used in babycare, cooking, and care for pets. It provides a clear vision of how you can easily introduce hydrosols in your daily life as well as using them for specific disorders.
