Fat of the Land

Balsam Fir Hydrosol

Distilled in a small-batch copper still using fresh plant material and hand-collected mountain spring water, Fat of the Land's Balsam Fir Hydrosol is a distillation of fresh balsam fir needles harvested from the highest peaks in the Catskill Mountains. Naturally astringent and antibacterial, this beautiful hydrosol makes a beautiful toner or room spray to take you to the dense evergreen forests of the northeast. 

Hydrosols are the cellular waters of a plant, containing their entire immune systems, essential oils, phytonutrients, and otherwise delicate and hard to extract constituents. The waters themselves are naturally slightly acidic, just like our skin, and when used they help balance pH and restore the skin’s delicate acid mantle, which is constantly being put off balance from soap, hard city water, and the ongoing barrage of environmental impact. Hydrosols quench the skin and allow greater permeation of creams, moisturizer, and oils. They’re gentle and effective for everyone, including children and pets.
