This is bamboo extract is an artisan-crafted steam distillation using fresh bamboo leaves organically grown on our farm in Florida. Hydrosols are water distillates that contain all of the essences of the plant dissolved into water. Hydrosols have the unique ability to extract both fat and water-soluble elements and so really act as a whole plant extraction. This is not a by-product, as many hydrosols are, and the product contains all of the essential oils within the liquid. The product is 100% bamboo and can be used in a variety of ways.
The bamboo hydrosol extract can be taken internally as you would a homeopathic remedy. They can also be used externally. The silica in bamboo acts as a binder of nutrients and so the teas, the glycerin extract, the powder, and the hydrosol can be used as a delivery system for other nutrients. In this case 1+1=4. Bamboo historically has been used in formulation with other herbs to make them more bio-available so you can do the same by adding these extracts to others. Of course on their own, they are also very powerful. Bamboo is safe for all ages and pregnant women.
Bamboo hydrosol has been shown to reduce sunburn by 50% overnight. (also works for burns) It is excellent for any and all skin conditions. My favorite way to use it is as a leave-in hair conditioner and a hydration spray. It is safe for all ages and is a great way to get silica into your skin directly. I love the way it feels.
Hydrosols have a slightly acidic PH and are excellent ways to restore the skin after a shower. Healthy skin has a slightly acidic level which acts as an anti-bacterial barrier. Restoring this acidic level also helps to reduce acne and breakouts. By feeding the skin at a cellular level with minerals, vitamins, and phytochemicals you are nourishing yourself through the largest organ of your body.
