I ordered some hydrosols from Nature's Gift Aromatherapy and they arrived yesterday. I had to try the Patchouli and also ordered Golden Champa and Owyhee. The Owyhee smells much like the essential oil with some more medicinal undertones-this is a a nice first aid and relaxing hydrosol, which can be used for disinfecting wounds or as a pillow spray and is a good replacement for Roman Chamomile. The Patchouli smells just like the frsh plant I had last year, which did not survive the winter inside my house (it had suffered some abuse by my husband, but that's another story for another time). The Golden Champa...............WOW! I am madly in love with this one! So much so that I ordered a 4 ounce bottle this morning. This will go into perfume blends and makes a lovely perfume in it's own right. I spritzed some on my right hand at around 6:30 to sample the aroma and even after a handwashing I could still smell it at 9:30 when I went to bed. I have no idea if there are any therapeutic applications for this one and honestly, don't care. It's worth the money just for the fragrance.
