Compared to the essential oil, Organic Lavender Hydrosol is lighter and somewhat earthier in fragrance.
Organic Lavender Hydrosol acts as a humectant and also helps to balance the skin. It can be used for all skin types including combination skin. Its beneficial properties can be helpful in supporting healthy skin. It is especially helful for problem and oily skin. It is also known for its ability to help cool and soothe sunburn and insect bites. Suzanne Catty mentions numerous uses for Lavender Hydrosol includes using to help prevent ingrown hairs and that it's a good addition to pre-shave formulations to help men get closer shaves.
Organic Lavender Hydrosol is calming and is safe to use in babycare and childcare formulations. Its remarkable calming properties makes it a wonderful addition to sprays for baby's room, baby's bathwater and for use to wipe after diaper changes. It is soothing to both the skin and nerves and can be used as a wetting agent for natural baby wipes. It can also be blended with one of our chamomile hydrosols for a synergistic hydrosol blend. Suzanne Catty suggests using it for little girls who want a perfume of their own, and we agree.
Organic Lavender Hydrosol provides emotional balance. It is both invigorating yet calming. It is an ideal hydrosol for inclusion in formulations for anxiety, depression, irritability and stress.
