Teatree hydrosol is said to have strong disinfectant, antibacterial, anti-fungal, astringent and anti-inflammatory properties, making it great for acne prevention and treatment. The astringent component can tighten, tone and firm skin as well as shrink large pores and reduce excess oil whilst its anti-inflammatory qualities can be soothing on irritated skin. Teatree hydrosol can also be sprayed on hair and make up brushes as a soft disinfectant.

Acne fighting skin cleanser:
1/3 cup liquid castile soap
2/3 cup teatree 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.
