IS HAWAIIAN SANDALWOOD SUSTAINABLE ?
It's true - In the last 10-20 years, Hawaiian Sandalwood, 'iliahi, was becoming very rare and endangered. It was basically clear cut and sent overseas. However, In the past several years, there has been a major push for reforestation of this amazing wood. The farm we work with, works directly with the University of Hawaii and a few other agencies on the big island (land management & so forth) and together have planted 1000's of trees in recent years, along with the other vegetation that is required for the 'iliahi to grow. The farm is committed to only harvesting off the dead & dying trees that have naturally fallen and aged for 3-5 years, making sure it is a 100% sustainable process. By purchasing from this source, we are supporting the farm directly, which in turn is allowing them to continue their reforestation efforts. Please keep in mind, we only offer this magical hydrosol on limited basis, in small batches at a time.
WHAT IS A HYDROSOL?
Hydrosols, also known as Distillates, are the subtle, and often aromatic waters resulting from slowly distilled plant material, and are some of nature's best antioxidants for the skin. Lovingly made using hand collected local spring water, combined with ethically wildcrafted and organically grown plant material, they are distilled in a traditional copper alembic still.
Alchemists from all over the world have performed transformational distillations in these traditional stills for over 3,000 years, and this artisan process still remains the same! The actual method of performing our distillations has a 5-7 hour duration, a much slower process compared to more commercialized modes of skin care production. What results, is a nutrient-rich, energetic, and authentic Hydrosol, containing the plant's own suspended micro particles of essential oil, plant acids, even a plant's specific essence and memory imprint. Each offers its own unique botanical remedy dependent on the plant distilled, thus leading to the reference that a Hydrosol is a hologram of the plant itself!
Hydrosols are incredibly gentle and well-suited for beings of all ages and sensitivities (including babies and pets alike). Wildcare Hydrosols are recommended as a daily facial toner, and play an important role in protecting and nourishing the skin from everyday pollutants. In addition to a being a supreme skin tonic, your Hydrosol may also be used as a holistic and energetic mist, scalp tonic, added to baths, and used in conjunction with our Clay Masks.
Store your Hydrosol in the refrigerator for extra-cooling skin relief and always in a cool, dark place, using within 1 year.
