Flower or floral water is the condensate water that remains after the extraction of an essential oil by distillation. When essential oils are produced by either water or steam distillation some of the aromas and oils are left in the water after the essential oils are separated out. This means that some of the aromatic and healing properties held within the plant are actually captured in this floral water, more accurately called a hydrolate or hydrosol.
