Our organic hydrolats or flower waters, are produced during the steam distillation of essential oils. These gentle skin-kind organic botanical waters contain water soluble plant extracts making them perfect as natural skin toners. They are very gentle and skin calming making them suitable for sensitive skin types. Customers should be aware that hydrolats do not have strong aromas, and often do not smell like the plant from which they were distilled. For this reason we recommend the following, for facial skin:
Organic rose hydrolat (aqua and rosa damascene) has a gentle sweet aroma. It suits all skin types, but is particularly good on troubled and sensitive skin types. We have found that customers with rosacea have had good results when using this organic hydrolat
Organic orange blossom hydrolat (aqua and citrus aurantium) has a drier, less floral aroma. It is suited to all skin types, but particularly suits oily and combination complexions since it is gently astringent to remove excess oiliness.
These are certified organic hydrolats, and these are pure distillates so do not contain any alcohols or preservatives. We refrigerate these before sale and would recommend that they are stored in a cool, dark place. They should be used within 6 months of opening.
They are lovely to store in the fridge, to gently spritz the face and decollate after a warm day. We have received lots of feedback from ladies who are struggling with hormonal changes during menopause, and have said that a cooling spritz of a hydrolat straight from the fridge is a lovely way to cool their face when they're "having a moment".
Presented in a 50ml blue glass bottle with plastic spray attachment and clear over cap. This size is perfect for taking to the gym or on holiday. The screw top attachment means this bottle may be re-filled. So please consider the environment and why not buy one of our refills, rather than throw away the glass bottle.
