Frankincense hydrosol is said to have strong anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties making it great for use on acne, eczema and rashes, also to help reduce scarring.
It is also said to be a deeply nourishing, anti-ageing ingredient that has a firming effect on skin while helping to smooth fine lines. Its astringent properties can help tighten pores and reduce oiliness.
All of these properties make it an excellent facial toner for dry, oily and mature skin.
Hydrosols can be used in skin care products, replacing some or all of the water portion. Also used as room sprays, to freshen linen, etc.
Hydrosols can be used as a toner for all skin types as it is impregnated with water-soluble (hydrophilic) compounds that are not present in essential oils. Soothing, anti-inflammatory carboxylic acids are found almost exclusively in hydrosols.
