A note from Justine (hydrosols are a family affair)
My love for rose geranium is like a deep canyon; the more I know about this beautiful plant the more I love her. This year for Botnia’s fourth birthday I made our hydrosol from rose geranium that my father-in-law grew for us in the home he grew up in near San Diego. The land of the plant is just as potent as the plant itself, and his family’s land is tucked into a hillside of southern California that mimics the arid conditions of the African land these plants originate from. Safe from any herbicides and pesticides, this rose geranium thrives even in the colder winter months, offering us a fresh distillation of its leaves. In the second week of January my father-in-law drove up to Sausalito with fresh cuttings, harvested on the new moon to ensure the continued growth of the plant and optimal timing for our hydrosol. My husband, Chris, and his dad and I as a family packed our still: laying the leaves precisely so the vapor could rise through the cylinder capturing all the plant oils to deliver a medicinally dense and fragrant liquid. I was so touched that my father-in-law was able to experience the final result of the love and care he had given this plant. And to watch my husband and his father together in creation was so beautiful. It’s a memory that I’ll always cherish. The end result is a hydrosol made from my family to you, with the careful attention I’ve always dreamt is possible when you truly love your craft. My hope is that when you use our rose geranium hydrosol you can feel the love and experience the magical benefits of this plant as a part of the way you care for yourself daily. Use in good health.
