Gentle Healing Powers from Plant Water

The new edition includes videos with additional information that can be accessed with the Freya Books app on the smartphone or tablet. Hydrolates are highly effective plant waters that are created during the steam distillation of flowers, leaves, seeds or roots. They are generally known today as by-products in the production of essential oil and are rarely used. Flower or plant water has been common knowledge since ancient times and its effectiveness has been handed down in medicine. Hydrolates contain the water-soluble substances of a plant and only traces of essential oil, but are much more concentrated than herbal tea, for example. You can read about them in the book and find tips and tricks for copying them in the additional videos.
