What are Hydrosols?
Hydrosols are the aromatic water remaining after an essential oil is distilled by steam. They contain micro-molecules of essential oils and strengthen the surface immunity of skin. Their aromas are often soft and subtle.
Better than toners.
Yes, we said it. Unlike toners which usually contain alcohols, dyes and synthetic fragrances, Hydrosols are completely organic and do not contain any added ingredients. With the average PH being around 4.0-5.0 (which is in the range of the skin's natural PH of about 5.5) they make excellent astringents and PH balancers.
Skin benefits & how to use...
Instantly hydrate, refresh, and replenish your complexion while balancing skin’s delicate pH level. Hydrosols are unrefined, and contain their full nutrient value. They are anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-septic and rich in antioxidants.
Hydrosols can be used at anytime, they make great refreshers throughout the day. They absorb very easily into the skin, making them great to apply before and after moisturizing your skin. They are meant to keep the complexion hydrated and protected. Using hydrosols daily will maintain optimal skin health, prevent acne and sooth dry skin.

If you are acne prone, use the Peppermint Hydrosol as it has many anti-inflammatory + anti-bacterial properties. Simply drench a cotton round with your hydrosol of choice and pat off any excess oils.
