The Douglas Fir, Pseudotsuga menziesii, is a majestic evergreen conifer that is most commonly found on the Pacific (Western) side of the United States and Canada (British Columbia). The state of Oregon has denoted the Douglas Fir as its official state tree.
Our Organic Douglas Fir Hydrosol is expertly steam distilled from the needles and twigs of certified organic Douglas Fir and is then carefully bottled and stored to ensure the purity and freshness of this fragrant, premium quality hydrosol.
This beautiful hydrosol possesses a fresh, sweet, woody, evergreen aroma. It is highly versatile and can be used for a wide variety of applications on its own or as an ingredient in a wide range of formulations.
Of the constituents present in Organic Douglas Fir Hydrosol, it consists of over 70% monoterpenols. Organic Douglas Fir Hydrosol is uplifting, refreshing, gently energizing and rejuvenating. It is well suited for inclusion in facial toners, body sprays, natural fragrances and other water-based personal care, aromatherapy, holistic wellbeing and home fragrancing products.
This beautiful hydrosol is a wonderful addition to formulations intended for use any time of the year, but it's also perfectly suited for inclusion in winter, Christmas and seasonal formulations.
Visit our Hydrosols category page for a detailed introduction to hydrosols. For more in-depth information on hydrosols and their many valuable applications, we recommend the book Hydrosols: The Next Aromatherapy Book by Suzanne Catty.
We ship our hydrosols in plastic to avoid breakage, but we recommend transferring to glass bottles for long term storage. Like essential oils, hydrosols should be stored in a cool dry place. Refrigeration is ideal. The shelf life of hydrosols is up to 2 years when they are stored properly. Our Organic Douglas Fir Hydrosol does not contain any preservatives.
