Lemon Balm Hydrosol // Rose Hydrosol
2oz glass spray bottle
Melissa officinalis (Lemon Balm) hydrosol and Rosa damascena (Rose) hydrosol were distilled in Big Sur, CA.
Hydrosols, also known as “flower waters,” are made by distilling fresh leaves, fruits, flowers, and other plant materials. These aromatic waters are similar to essential oils in that they carry beneficial skin properties but are much less concentrated.
Lemon Balm hydrosol is a member of the mint family and has a pleasant lemony fragrance. This plant can benefit so many different skin + health concerns thanks to its healthy dose of antioxidants. It is a very calming plant making it great for emotional distress. Children who have a hard time focusing or have an overactive mind can benefit greatly from lemon balm. This plant is high in polyphenols, which have strong antiviral properties, making it very effective against cold sores. Spray the hydrosol on effected areas to help soothe and speed up the healing process during an outbreak. You can also use this hydrosol as a natural bug repellent! It contains a small amount of citronellal, which helps to keep bugs at bay.
Rose hydrosol has an intoxicating aroma of fresh blooms. It not only can uplift your senses + mood but also has so many skin benefits. Rose hydrosol is great for ALL skin types and is especially beneficial as a toner by those with sensitive, dry and/or oily or mature skin.
