Locally sourced Biodynamic® Menthapiperita 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 self-seeding Peppermint begins to sprout in their dedicated beds. The stalks that become our hydrosols are treated with special Biodynamic sprays to foster fertility and vibrancy.
Step 2 Later during summer and once they have reached their desired maturity, 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 peppermint 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 classic minty 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
When applied topically on the skin, peppermint is known to have anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antimicrobial, and particularly soothing and cooling benefits, especially when applied on bug bites and rashes.
We measured how much carbon we consume to create our collection of hydrosols, which, thankfully, is very little. Every aspect of the making was evaluated to determine its carbon footprint.
The easiest way to use hydrosols for the skin is quite simple: cleanse the face with your preferred cleanser (ours are cleansing oils) and apply a few spritzes of your favorite hydrolat to the face like a toner.
