Locally sourced Biodynamic® Lavandula angustifolia steam-distilled hydrolat
From Seed to Bottle
All our hydrosols are grown on the same farm, by the same master Biodynamic gardener in New York, close to our studio.
From the very beginning of the plant’s life, through its growth and flowering within a very well draining soil, to the time of harvest, we provide our plants an environment that thoroughly enhances their medicinal qualities, a gift of the Biodynamic® approach to soil and plants.
HOW A HYDROSOL IS BORN
Step 1 Once the harshness of winter and the last frost have passed, the lavender shrubs that become our hydrosols are treated with special Biodynamic sprays to foster fertility and vibrancy.
Step 2 After the lavender has begun to flower, sometime in late spring or early summer, our master gardener and distiller begins to plan their harvest, knowing from 30 years of experience, the best time to capture the abundant plant compounds and cellular water at a time in their growth cycle when the plant is at its most vital and essential oil production is high.
Step 3 Within minutes of harvesting, the lavender stalks are placed into a classic copper alembic still. Natural well spring water is heated to create the steam that then passes through the plant material, condensing into hydrosol and filling the greenhouse with its intoxicating floral aroma.
Step 4 The sterilized jars filled with newly produced hydrosol are refrigerated until filled into the very bottles that end up in your hands.
The Result Every step of this process is focused on the details to give us the most decadent hydrosols we’ve ever seen. Like an exquisite wine, our fine hydrosols are the result of their terroir - the location and method of growing, the precise time of harvest, the exact distillation process and bottling.
A message from our master distiller
“Our hydrosols come from the steam distillation of our medicinal plants.
Made in micro batches to ensure only first-choice plants are used, we take great care through each step of the distillation process.”
“From the very beginning of the plant’s life, through its growth and flowering within a very well draining soil, to the time of harvest, we provide our plants an environment that thoroughly enhances their medicinal qualities, a gift of the Biodynamic® approach to soil and plants.
Involving specific sprays, attention to the quality of the soil, timing of intervention in regards to the moon and other energetic aspects, our goal is to foster a high content of qualitative medicinal constituents. This you will find in the hydrosols we make.”
More from our Jardin
I chose lavender to inaugurate this section because it is a truly foundational plant for skincare. It’s such a complete plant that it is widely used and well-known for many things: cuisine, herbal medicine, adornment, and cosmetics.
Distillate plant waters, while fairly overlooked in modern aromatherapy, have long been affiliated with healing and were in use far before essential oils as we know them today were.
At Maison/Made we talk frequently about our “jardin to bottle” approach. What we mean by Jardin to Bottle is an acute knowledge of the complete lifecycle of every ingredient in our formulas.
