    Distilled, filtered, ozonated

    So I bought five gallons of distilled water at CVS, and it says that it's "Distilled, filtered, and ozonated to ensure quality". I'm wondering why they would have to filter distilled water, unless they're adding minerals to it. I'd like to know if I can safely use it on my plants because they're the nearest and cheapest place for the water.

    Thanks!

    Yeah sure, if the filter left no minerals then sure.

    Did the label also suggest that the product promoted "wellness" and "goodness?"

    Nope. Just to ensure quality. I'm not sure if the filtered aspects removes soluble compounds with the same boiling point of water (Which wouldn't be removed by distillation) or adds minerals to improve taste/healthiness.

    The filtering will probably be used to remove volatile organic compounds (VOCs), as these distil over with the steam.
