Hydrosols are wonderfully therapeutic for the skin. They have just the right pH to help balance the skin's acid mantle (protective barrier). They provide lightweight hydration, soothe inflammation and redness, and refresh the skin with a single spritz. Use prior to our butters or facial oils to help add moisture to the skin or spritz to cool and refresh after a hot day or a hard workout.
These natural wonders also have healing properties that make them useful for cuts, scrapes, rashes, dermatitis, insect bites, and burns. They're much more gentle than herbs and essential oils and can be used on everyone from infants to the elderly and even pets (with the exception of peppermint).
Refrigeration is optimal. Use within 6 months of purchase.
Add 1tsp to 16oz to flavor water or to less water for therapeutic uses.
Choose single hydrosols or blends based on your needs. Custom blends available at no extra charge.
Calendula: Known as "the skin herb", calendula is a great choice for any kind of skin malady. It's great for inflammation, acne, dermatitis, hives, wounds, and bruises to name a few. It's gentle enough to soothe diaper rash or sore nipples when nursing. Taken internally, it can help with inflammatory digestive disorders or help cleanse the liver and gallbladder. Swish in your mouth or apply a soaked cotton ball for a toothache. There are so many uses! (organic hydrosol distilled from Calendula Officinalis (calendula) flowers)
Frankincense: Supports overall skin health, refines, tones, and nourishes, great for mature skin. Perfect choice to soothe skin irritations or to refresh in hot, humid weather. The gentle aroma is wonderful for meditation, reiki, and prayer. (organic hydrosol distilled from Boswellia carteri (frankincense) resin)
Lavender: Soothes inflammation and speeds the healing of wounds and skin irritations. Great for burns (especially sunburns), bites, rashes, hives, dermatitis, dry skin, and post-shave. Spritz to help soothe stress and anxiety or mist bed linens to help you sleep. Gentle enough for baby; use for diaper rash or spray in the crib or put 2 tablespoons in the bath to help soothe and calm. Makes a great "monster" spray for kids. (organic hydrosol distilled from Lavandula angustifolia (lavender) flowers and stems)
Peppermint: Digestive, anti-inflammatory, cooling, and mind-stimulating. Use as a facial spray to cool, tone, and revitalize (avoid eye area). Soothes inflamed skin, rashes, and itchiness. It's a safe additive to flavor water, or to use as a breath spray. It can make a refreshing room spray and is a wonderfully cooling and soothing spray for hot flashes. Internally, peppermint can help with bloating, heartburn, reflux, and other digestive issues. *Do not use on infants or pets (organic hydrosol distilled from Mentha x piperita)
Rose: Helps add and retain moisture in the skin and is a great option when flying or in dry climates. Great for mature skin. Cooling, and slightly astringent, a great toner for normal, dry, mature, sensitive, and tired skin. Rose has an affinity for the heart and helps promote emotional balancing. (organic hydrosol distilled from Rosa damascena (rose) petals)
