Shelf Life: 1-2 years
Notes about the distiller and grower:
The Engelmann Spruce was harvested using a collection permit from the USDA Forestry Service in the Apache National Forest at about 8,500 feet in elevation. Resin from fallen branches, cones, and needles/twigs were collected for this distillation.
The entire bulk of plant material was soaked for about 20 hours before distillation occurred. The resin and cones were placed in the belly of the copper still while the needles/twigs were placed in the column. The distillation was a very slow and long process to ensure that a full bodied hydrosol was captured.
A small sample has been sent for analysis for this particular hydrosol and will be listed soon.
Aroma: The aroma of this hydrosol is fresh, crisp, and lively with the aroma the needles of the Engelmann Spruce.

To get the most use of your hydrosols, I recommend storing them in cold, dark places or refrigerators. The average shelf life is approximately 1-2 years for this hydrosol. The shelf life can be extended if stored properly.
This hydrosol is packaged in a clear glass 2 or 4 ounce bottle with an atomizer so it is ready for immediate use. All 8 ounce bottles are packaged in a cobalt blue PET plastic with a disc cap to avoid potential breakage during transit.
