Lavender hydrosol is a fragrant, secondary product of the essential oil steam distillation process.
Boiling water steamed through plant material, inside a stainless steel tank forces the volatile oils into vapor. This vapor, cooled in the condensing coils causes the oil and water to separate out. There is no way to cool all the oil from the water vapor so the result is some oil suspended – but thoroughly mixed – in the water. This is hydrosol. There is no need, with a true hydrosol, to shake well.

Lavender Hydrosol - 16 oz Spray
I am keen to refill your bottle. Please follow these instructions. It is very important that you NOT clean the inside of your hydrosol bottle with anything. Bleach and soap can ruin the entire refill batch. Just put the lid on it to keep dirt and dust out once it is empty.
