Lime Hydrosol, Exposing The Truth
Understanding the Cheating Methods in Hydrosol Production
In the world of hydrosols, not all production methods are created equal, and some practices can significantly decrease the quality and effectiveness of the final product.
The Issue of Prolonged Boiling of Plant Inside The Water
- Loss of Therapeutic Properties: When plant materials are boiled excessively, it leads to the degradation of vital compounds. This prolonged exposure to high temperatures breaks down the delicate essential oils and active constituents in lime, resulting in a hydrosol that lacks potency.
- Alteration of Chemical Composition: Extended boiling can alter the chemical structure of the plant’s compounds. This means that the therapeutic benefits, for which Lime Hydrosol is sought after, are significantly reduced or altered.
How We As Green Fields Oils Ensures Purity
- Controlled Steam Distillation: We employ a controlled steam distillation process, which involves passing steam through lime plant materials. This method ensures that only the beneficial components are extracted, maintaining the integrity of the hydrosol.
- Temperature Regulation: Our distillation process carefully monitors temperature to ensure that it is just right for extracting the essence of lime without degrading its quality.
- Shorter Exposure to Heat: By minimizing the time the plant material is exposed to heat, we preserve the natural compusition and therapeutic properties of the lime hydrosol.
The Science Behind Quality Hydrosol Production
- Optimal Extraction of Volatile Compounds: Steam distillation is scientifically proven to be effective in extracting volatile compounds which are responsible for the aroma and therapeutic benefits of lime
- Preservation of Hydrophilic Components: This method also ensures the preservation of hydrophilic (water-loving) components, which are crucial for the hydrosol’s effectiveness.
- Avoidance of Thermal Degradation: By keeping temperatures within the optimal range, we prevent thermal degradation of the essential oils and active compounds in lime.

Lumi (Dried Lime) Hydrosol, Middle Eastern Tradition
These sun-dried limes, transforming from vibrant green to earthy brown, carry within them centuries of cultural traditions. Unlike their fresh counterparts, Lumi offers a deep, complex aroma, an embodiment of the sun-soaked lands from which they originate.
From Sun-Dried Citrus to Hydrosol, A Journey of Transformation
The creation of Lumi Hydrosol is a process that combines ancient practices with modern distillation techniques. Through steam distillation, the rich, somewhat smoky and tangy essence of dried lime is delicately extracted, capturing its soul in a more subtle form than essential oil.
Lumi in Cultural Lore
In the rich tapestry of Middle Eastern culture, Lumi itself has been a symbol of culinary innovation. It has added depth and flavor to stews, soups, and rice dishes, an irreplaceable ingredient in recipes passed down through generations. Its distinct flavor is often associated with warmth, family gatherings, and the fusion of spices that define Middle Eastern cuisine.
The Modern Uses of Lumi Hydrosol
Today, Lumi Hydrosol steps beyond the kitchen, finding its place in holistic wellness and natural skincare. It offers gentle astringent properties, excellent toner for oily or acne-prone skin. Its astringent properties help tighten pores and control excess oil.
