Refreshing Ways to Use Organic Sage Hydrosol

I absolutely love our organic sage hydrosol! This delightful aromatic is water-steam distilled from fresh culinary sage. It is uplifting, energetic, and grounding — all at the same time! It smells a lot like fresh sage leaves and is primarily made up of 1,8-cineole and camphor.

Considered a balancing astringent, organic sage hydrosol makes an excellent base for deodorant sprays and facial toners. It can be used as a single ingredient spray or blended with citrus notes, other culinary spice notes, or herby green notes.

Personally, I love blending sage into room sprays and aromatherapy diffuser blends. The room spray below can be used as is or added to a water-based diffuser for more continuous and distributed use. Sage and peppermint are stimulating aromas, so I would not recommend diffusing for more than 30 minutes at a time.

This lovely, refreshing aroma blend makes a wonderful room spray and is great to use around the office when you need a focusing pick-me-up.



  1.  Carefully add essential oils directly to a 3 oz. bottle of organic sage hydrosol. Our three ounce size already comes with a mister!
  2.  Replace lid and mist as needed. Shake well before each use.
