Cedar oil is popular topically for its benefits with rheumatism, arthritis, achy muscles, psoriasis, eczema, and fungal infections. It also helps promote circulation, though it can also be a skin irritant in some people as it tends to constrict the skin’s pores. Because of this, Cedar Hydrosol Water makes a great base in lotions and creams.
Cultivation: Wildharvested. Meaning this plant material derived found in areas that were not from a farmed plantation. Most often well away from highly populated areas, putting it at low risk of being chemically treated. In our opinion, wildharvested products are sometimes better than organic. We believe this because wildharvested products are grown entirely by nature without the intervention of man.
INCI (unpreserved hydrosol water): Thuja plicata (cedar) hydrosol water
INCI (preserved hydrosol water): Thuja plicata (cedar) hydrosol water, propanediol, ethylhexyl glycerin, potassium sorbate
Typically distillates are the bi-product of the essential oil business. They are often produced overseas and shipped to the U.S. in drums by cargo boat, then stored until ordered. We, however, steam our hydrosols in-house on our custom-built equipment. Because we are the direct manufacture, we have a unique production system that allows us to produce hydrosol waters daily. Therefore practically ensuring that your hydrosol water will be steamed just for your order!
Hydrosol waters work great in lotions, creams, bath preparations, or straight on the skin. They provide mild tonic and skin cleansing properties and are generally safe for all skin types. Thus we manufacture our waters with their therapeutic value to the skin in mind. We, however, do not market our waters as scent additives. Though, of course, all hydrosols will have a unique scent, but some will be significantly lighter than others due to the essential oil content that each herb holds.
If you are looking for a water-based scent additive for your formulation, I suggest checking out our Essential Water categories. We carry the duplicate scents for both hydrosol and EO waters. EO waters are designed to add a scent “throw” into your formulations, whereas hydrosol waters are designed more for their benefits to the skin. Their natural scent is an added bonus.
This product will arrive 100% preservative-free unless you select to add the optional preservative when ordering.
Hydrosol waters are fragile, so it is our opinion that all hydrosol waters be preserved as close to the manufacture date as possible. Because of this, if they become contaminated, mold and bacteria can lead to serious health risks. A well-researched preservative is better than the risks of using/selling non-preserved ingredients.
Without the preservative, hydrosols have a 3-month shelf life when stored in the refrigerator or chilled location. With the preservative option included, they should be used up within a year of the purchase or added to a formulation that will contain further preservatives.
We preserve at 1%. If you would like the optional preservative added to your water, please first select “yes,” then choose the size of bottle you wish to order. If you would like to learn more about this preservative, Linatural
The USDA only certifies agricultural ingredients. If you select ‘yes’ to add Linatural to extend the shelf life, then this item can no longer be considered a certified organic ingredient. Thus it will arrive to you without the certification seals on the label.
