Hyrdosols, also known as floral/plant waters, are produced by steam distilling fresh leaves, fruits, flowers and other plant materials; they have very similar properties to essential oils, but are much less concentrated. Hydrosols still contain important properties such as their water soluble components, essential oil molecules, and the fluid that was in the plant when it was collected. These are powerful natural healing tools in the aromatherapy world for their abilities to calm the nervous system, ease anger, uplift mood, eliminate toxins, relieve skin irritations, and help connect more to nature and self.

We have chosen to use a special Biodynamic lavender hydrosol sourced from Sophia’s Garden in Sebastopol, CA in our Adrenal Supertonic for the calming effects that lavender can induce in the body. In a study with 40 adults given 3 minutes of aromatherapy, the people who were given lavender showed an increase in beta power, thus suggesting that it increases drowsiness. They also had a less depressed mood and reported feeling more relaxed.

Not only does lavender smell heavenly, but it also adds a beautiful and unique taste to the flavor profile of this formula. We have sourced the highest quality lavender hydrosol that has been grown biodynamically (which is a form of farming that is more intensive and restrictive than just organic farming) because the health of the soil and integrity of the growing processes is extremely important to us at Cymbiotika. Enjoy the relaxing and calming energies that this lavender hydrosol brings into our Adrenal Supertonic!
