All of our hydrosols and herbal products start out as seed or seedling on our small, family farm. Our little mountain valley in Northeast Washington state has deep, mineral rich soil; cool, fresh spring water; and long, sunny days. This all helps us to produce high quality, vital herbs and flowers that produce exquisite, vital hydrosols. Our hydrosols are never the by-product of an essential oil. They are aromatically rich and complex. Experience the difference, you'll never go back.
Our 4 oz bottle comes with a fine mist applicator spray top.
8, 16, & 32 oz bottles have a twist off cap with no spray top.
Tulsi hydrosol has a light pink hue to it. It is also common to see small copper particles at the bottom of this hydrosol. Our hydrosols are distilled in copper alembic stills and basils (such as Tulsi) react with the copper in such a way that the hydrosol takes on some of the copper. As the hydrosol ages the copper precipitates out and gathers at the bottom. This is color and precipitate is natural and an indicator of a quality, copper distilled hydrosol from the basil family.
