Organic Floral Waters are produced during steam distillation of organic essential oils. They do not always have the same aroma as the essentials oils themselves and can at times even have a slightly 'baked' aroma, but this is normal. They have a powerful therapeutic effect.
Organic Essential Oil Waters are handmade by diffusing organic essential oil in spring water and filtering out the essential oil after a few weeks, this makes a more beautiful aroma compared to floral water and the aroma is the same as the essential oil. They have a powerful therapeutic effect in the same way as floral water.
