Peppermint (mentha piperita) needs little introduction. It's distinct fragrance and flavor are familiar to everyone, but not everyone knows about the valuable medicinal benefits of this common herb.
We us it in our mouthwash, we add it to our hair rinse and use it in our foot bath, we use it as a spritzer in the heat of summer to help restore energy and cool the skin, we add it to our drinking water and juice for a fresh, minty addition that helps ease all sorts of belly issues, including gas and constipation, and we spray it around our house to help freshen the air. Because it is gentler than peppermint essential oil on both the senses and the body, we use this freely in place of the essential oil.
We harvest the leaves and stems of our peppermint plant from our own farm where they are never exposed to any toxic chemicals or poisons, then place them directly into the distiller so we can capture the greatest amount of benefits. The final result is a hydrosol that smells mildly of peppermint without being overwhelming.
Hydrosols are incredibly versatile and we absolutely love them! They are safe to take internally, but can also be added to baths, skin care products, or used alone as a spritzer.
Hyrdosols and floral waters are not the same thing. True hydrosols can only be made using steam extraction, which allows the essential oils and other vital components of plants to be extracted into water. At Tamara's Herbes, all of our hydrosols are made using a steam distiller, pure spring water, and organic or wild-crafted plants that are free from any chemical residue that can leach into the finished product.
