Cucumber Hydrosol

Cucumber Hydrosol

Cucumber hydrosol is a perfect summertime hydrosol for cooling and refreshing the body. It is a wonderful "introductory" hydrosol for those that are new to working with pure aromatic waters.

I love using Cucumber Hydrosol as the wetting agent when I make facial masks using french green and other cosmetic clays. They pair so nicely together.

The aroma of a pure Cucumber Hydrosol is light, and it is reminiscent to the aroma one experiences when cutting up a fresh cucumber. Don't expect the aroma of true Cucumber Distillate to be as strong as synthetic cucumber fragrance/flower waters.

Cucumis sativus

Aromatic Strength

Up to 2 years if stored properly (refrigeration is recommended).
