Our Sweetgrass Hydrosol is a product of the steam distillation of the fresh grass leaves. It has a fresh, sweet fragrance, and is distilled solely for it's hydrosol. Historically, Sweetgrass has played a large role in sacred ceremonies in Native American culture. Some Native American cultures even believe it was the first plant to cover the Earth! Sweetgrass later became known as "fragrant Holy Grass" because of its sacred ties with Western faith, originating in Northern Europe. It is sometimes used for flavoring candy and soda, dried and added to smudge sticks, or used to weave baskets.
Sweetgrass Hydrosol can be added to perfumes, room sprays, or deodorizing sprays. It can also be used as part or all of the water phase for nonionic or cationic creams and lotions for the body.
Sweetgrass Hydrosol is preserved with Leucidal Liquid SF, a mild and natural preservative. It is for external use only.
