Apis Apotheca's hydrosols are the pure expression of the plants they cultivate themselves in their Hudson, NY fields. Water rises through the plants during the day to greet the sun, and falls again to the roots at night, like the sweet sap in a maple tree. When the waters rise and the sun is shining, the plants we distill are singing with essential oils and water soluble nutrients that we are able to quickly capture in all their glory, and bottle for you. All of the plants we distill have slightly different characters and affinities, but all are wonderful for balancing skin pH and our microbiome, and by using these flower waters before moisturizing we can help our oils and balms sink in and go deeper to keep our skin hydrated and balanced day and night. By combining these copper distilled cellular plant waters with science backed Niacinamide and N-Acetyl Glucosamine, we can encourage proper shedding of skin cells, increased hydration, and faster scar fading.

To use:

Spritz on damp, clean skin before applying oils or balms, or combine a few pumps with an oil or balm in your palm and smooth the combination over cleansed skin. 

2 oz


Organic, seasonally rotated, farm-distilled hydrosol, Niacinamide, N-acetyl Glucosamine
