Floral water is obtained by the same process as the essential oil, namely by steam distillation of water. The flowers are crossed by water-steam. Once it is released from the container, the steam, which is enriched by the essential oil contained by the plants, is condensed in a coil that has been kept in cold. The recovered fluid is composed by essential oil and water: The floral water is the water naturally enriched by traces of essential oils (about 0.1%). The floral water concentration will be expressed as a percentage. A floral water at 50% means that 50 kg of dry plants were required to produce 100 kg of floral water.

Himalayan Cedar, Cedrus deodara (Roxb. ex D. Don) (Pinales: Pinaceae), is found abundantly throughout the western Himalayas at altitudes of 1200–3000 m. Cedrus deodara is also known as Himalayan cedar. That is due to the fact that it is beside Nepal and India native to the Himalayas. In the Himalayans Cedrus deodara occurs till 3000 m above sea level. However the Himalayan cedar got nearly extinct in its natural habitat. Cedrus deodara can reach a height of 35 m in nature. In Germany it stays a little bit smaller. In its first 10 years the Himalayan cedar grows fast, reaching 10 m after 10 years. With aging growing slows down. The habitus of Cedrus deodara is bushy and cone- shaped. This makes the Himalayan cedar especially an eye catcher even if it is planted solitary. The bark is grayish and scaly; the branches grow horizontal to the trunk, generating an angle of almost 90°. The wood was used in India to build ships. Cedrus deodara has the longest needles of all cedar species. In young years the needles are soft and flexible. With aging they get darker. The Himalayan cedar is mostly diecious. The male flowers are cylindric and yellowish to reddish in color whereas the female flowers are light green and longish. After pollination it takes one year until the Himalayan cedar bears fruits and another two years until the fruits are ripe. In Europe it is quite infrequent to see a Cedrus deodara flowering. It is cultivated there because of its nice habitus. The Himalayan cedar does not tolerate very cold winters like they are usual in parts of Europe. It needs some protection during winter especially if it is still young.

Also known as hydrosols, floral waters are actually a by-product of the steam distillation process used to capture essential oils. During a normal essential oil distillation process, the steam containing the oils is cooled to turn it into water, and the essential oils floating on top are skimmed off and bottled. The remaining water is considered floral water! Any floral water contains water, water-soluble components of the plant, and trace amounts of the essential oil. This unique composition lends each floral water a full spectrum of the essence and properties of the botanical material from which it was derived. Though they are most often called floral waters, hydrosols can be produced from any plant matter like herbs, needles, leaves, woods, barks, and seeds.

Floral waters have many valuable uses in beauty, skincare, haircare, and household products. At Venkatramna Industries, we offer wide range of floral waters for a variety of product applications. They can be sold as pure floral waters to be used as sprays and spritzers, or they can be strategically blended with other ingredients to create versatile consumer products.
