Hydrosols are distilled plant or flower water. A lot of the face mists/ floral waters in the market are artificial imitations. Pure hydrosols contain all of the plant in its every drop, like a hologram.
At Makoii, I use my traditional copper alembic to create a 100% pure hydrosol of plants and herbs that I grow using the natural spring water or forage from the mountains. It is packed with water-soluble components, essential oil molecules and phytonutrients of the plant.
Use our Hydrosol as a face toner and hydrator to smoothen, hydrate and encourage regeneration of skin on the face and body and use also on linens for aromatherapy.

Created by Makoii Apothecary Ladakh, a slow micro-batch apothecary that formulates and produces handcrafted distillate, skincare formulations, botanical colours, precious oils, fragrances and more from herbs that are personally foraged or grown and harvested seasonally. The aspiration is to introduce an alternative source of wellness that is wholesome and fresh from the farm, straight to your body!
Everything created at Makoii is made with slow traditional methods using 100% pure and fresh ingredients straight from the earth alone, and nothing else!
After going on extensive treks in Ladakh during the summer of 2017, Deskit discovered a fascination for the wild herbs and plants that grew in the region. With time she started learning about the various herbs in the region and started studying them in detail. She took several courses in herbalism and actively began growing these plants herself. She started making use of these plants for self-care and wellbeing. Lots of experimentation and testing with family and friends led her to believe in herself and to start her own brand - Makoii Apothecary!
Deskit grows and forages several herbs like lilac, calendula etc to make her products.
Her passion for growing and studying plants and medicinal herbs in the region led her to create bespoke wellness and skin-care products.
The growing season in Ladakh is very short during the summer months which makes Makoii a unique challenge as well as a necessity to make the harsh winters in Ladakh.
Deskit wants to inspire the world to move towards localization and sustainable production. Small batches and handmade products are the way to go!
