Hydrosol, also referred to as "plant water", is the byproduct of essential oils. It is made from steam distilling flowers, plants, fruits, and other botanical materials through the captured steam, and therefore, contains all the beneficial cellular components of the materials from which they came, including their aroma.
Hydrosols have been used since ancient times, and it is said that Cleopatra herself preferred rose hydrosol. Rose water, aka Rose Otto Damascena Hydrosol, is especially popular because it offers an intoxicatingly sweet and rich aroma from fresh cut roses and is adored for supporting emotional well-being. In our hydrosol toner, we've also included aloe vera, due to its fresh, herbaceous scent. It has been used as a natural skin treatment since ancient times and continues to be a popular ingredient in skincare products around the world for its beneficial properties. Our organic Aloe Vera hydrosol is steam distilled from the whole leaf of mature, sun-ripened Aloe barbadensis plants.
Facial mask: Mix our Hydrosol toner with our Armpit Detox and apply to cleansed skin to use as a face mask. Rinse after 5-10 minutes.
Makeup setting spray: Our hyrdrosol can help set makeup. Simply spray some on your face once your makeup is all done to help it stay in place.
Body mist: Spray onto desired area prior to applying our Organic Body Butter for optimal absorption.
Room/pillow spray: Rose Hydrosol encourages a sense of well-being and peace to the senses. Use it when feeling down or stagnant, or to help balance emotions. Mist your room, sheets, towels, pillows and other linens to encourage a calming sensation and help reduce stress and anxiety.
Car freshening spray: Mist the interior of your car, avoiding polished, painted and fragile surfaces.
Deodorizer: Mist underarms to help prevent body odor. Mist the tops and bottoms of feet to help control odor and to refresh your feet. The anti fungal and antimicrobial properties in our radish root ferment filtrate help to safely fight bacteria.
How to use our hydrosol in your skincare routine:
Close your eyes and lightly mist our hydrosol into the air in front of you and let it fall onto cleansed face and neck, (or spray from a distance) and follow with a moisturizer. This helps add moisture to your routine and your face cream will seal it in. To use as a second cleanser, spray onto a reusable cotton round and gently swipe across the skin to remove impurities. To set makeup, spray into the air and let the mist fall onto your face.
Where it fits in your routine:
1. cleanse (try our best-selling cleansing oil, which pairs great with our hydrosol)
2. spray hydrosol
4. eye cream
6. makeup (if applying)
8. spray hydrosol again to refresh or to set makeup
*hint: you can spray it whenever you like!
We offer our hydrosol with a spray nozzle, as well as a metal cap option so that you can reuse your spray nozzle over and over!
