Personal notes: The aroma of this hydrosol is exquisite! It’s herbal, slightly sweet with an almost honeyed grass note, and just the right amount of florals. There’s almost a hint of summer to this that makes me just smile smelling it! Just from the aroma from this expertly crafted hydrosol will take you to a more pleasant state of relaxation and happiness - it reminds me of a carefree childhood! Something we all need these days!
Distiller & Cultivator notes: The German Chamomile is grown in Washington and distilled on site by the cultivators.
Other: German Chamomile hydrosol is wonderful for an array of skin concerns and is safe to use around children. Suzanne Catty lists it as an "anti-inflammatory" on all types of tissues. In general it is a much gentler alternative to the essential oil with regards to toddlers and children. It's a must have for anyone.

To get the most use of your hydrosols, I recommend storing them in cold, dark places or refrigerators. The average shelf life is approximately 4-5 years for Lavender hydrosol although if stored properly it can be maintained slightly longer.
This hydrosol is packaged in a clear glass 2 ounce 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.
