Chamomile hydrosol


Unpreserved.

Chamomile hydrosol has anti-inflammatory properties so is said to be wonderful for sensitive skin. It can be used to help soothe skin inflammation such as acne, eczema, rashes and sunburn.

It makes for an excellent toner for sensitive skin as it is a mild astringent, though not recommended for long term use if you have dry skin.

With many calming properties it makes for an excellent room and/or pillow spray and is often used to help support a soothing sleep environment for both adults and babies.

Can be used for infants in the bath or spritzed on a cloth for a healthy alternative to baby wipes.

Sensitive skin cleanser:
1/3 cup liquid castile soap
2/3 cup chamomile hydrosol
1 tbsp certified organic vegetable glycerin (coconut oil derived)

Combine in a glass jug and pour into a 250ml amber glass bottle with and close with a lotion pump.


About hydrosols
Hydrosols are the pure co-product of the steam distillation of plant material. When plants are steam distilled to produce essential oils, some valuable compounds of the plant, that are not found in the essential oil, become dissolved in the distillation water.

This condensed fragrant steam is known as hydrosols or aromatic waters. It contains some drops of the essential oil as well as water soluble plant properties which are anti-inflammatory and non-irritating for sensitive skin. The micro drops of essential oil provide the scent. The plant components give the hydrosols their herbal therapy properties. Hydrosols are gentle yet powerful therapeutic agents in their own right

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.
