Essential Oil Apothecary

Organic Hawaiian Sandalwood Hydrosol


I am sometimes asked what my favorite sandalwood hydrosol is which is like choosing a favorite kid. The East Indian has its butter (moreso with the vintage stuff, of course) but the Hawaiian has its own rich, woody nuance. It is crowned Royal Hawaiian (Santalum paniculatum) and is indeed royal: it is rich and sexy and comforting like old world aromatics tend to be. And like some of our customers, we find it hard to not to spray on the skin at every chance. It’s sandalwood after all.

Uses: After applying oil serum or Vegan C Cream, mist face to increase hydration. Consider using the hydrosol through out the day for maintaining a fresh, moisturized look and feel. Since I scrub my face at night with either our Bamboo Scrub or Provitamin B cleanser, in the morning I spray any of the hydrosols several times into my hands and gently apply to my face and then follow through with Vegan C cream to moisturize for the day. Spray on pillows as needed for relaxation and gentle scenting. Under arms love a freshening up with our hydrosols as do feet after a long day in shoes.

One doesn’ naturally think of hydrosols as a medicinal (the water left behind essential oil distillation) but they carry hydrophilic and microscopic properties of essential oils in suspension. Hydrosols also contain carboxylic acid for anti-inflammatory activity making them very much a medicinal. In my many years of anti aging skin formulating, I have witnessed the the importance of hydrosol use in combination with face serums for holistic anti aging skin care as well as an effective treatment of skin issues.We are very committed to storage and handling with all of our raw materials: all glass packaging in the Essential Oil Apothecary line is sterilized with 190 proof organic alcohol and stored in a climate controlled environment, surrounded with my personal collection of vintage gemstone pieces, some of which can been seen in product photos. Gemstones and essential oils belong together as far as we’re concerned at Essential Oil Apothecary.

Packaged in 3.3 oz/100 ml glass bottles.
