New! Tulsi Hydrosol

Hydrosols, or flower waters, are the fragrant liquid produced by steam distillation of botanical material, usually in copper stills. These delicately scented waters make wonderful perfumes, aromatherapy sprays, or facial mists, and can also be used in lotion or cream formulations. Mountain Rose Herbs offers a delectable assortment of hydrosols for every mood, and we’re excited to add a new one: Tulsi!

Tulsi, also known as Holy Basil, has long been revered as a sacred healing plant in Ayurvedic medicine. It also happens to have a delightful fragrance! Warm, soothing, and just a little bit spicy, this hydrosol is in a class all by itself. Here at Mountain Rose Herbs, several of us have been spritzing it on our faces when the hustle and bustle gets to an especially high level. So calming! The 4 oz size comes in an amber glass spritzer bottle, perfect for keeping on a desktop or in a bathroom, and the larger sizes are ideal for refilling the spritzer.

Fragrant cheers!
