Sedimentary, My Dear
at the bottom
It's One of these 30 Possibilites
Because I am constantly testing different extracts in different combinations (as well as continuing with the tried and true ones), it has taken me most of the summer to pinpoint the culprit. Since all of the hydrosols and extracts were well within date and there was no sign of bacterial activity, it could only be plant residue from one of the 30-odd ingredients I had been working with.

and it dissapates
Apparantly you can only filter out so much when tapping a plant extract, and the further down the barrel you tap from, the more sediment you risk getting. Not that there's anything wrong with the product – it just doesn't look very good. If I were adding this to a cream, lotion, or anything else with an emulsifier, it woudn't be a problem. But this is a clear liquid in a clear bottle. Unidentified brown stuff in the bottle is just not on – no matter how beneficial to the skin the ingredient is.
