lavender flower water
binomial name: lavandula angustifolia
lavender water or hydrosol is the byproduct of the distillation of lavender. this aromatic water contains the very essence of the active botanical elements contained within the live plant. this variety delivers the same medicinal properties and fragrance that make lavender so distinctive. hydrosols deliver a wide range of therapeutic and cosmetic benefits and are well suited for all ages.
benefit: its healing, anti-inflammatory attributes keep dry skin hydrated and hot, sensitive skin cool, especially as a mist to provide quick pain relief from sunburns, bug bites, ingrown hairs and rashes. as a toner, hydrosols are useful as astringents that constrict and contract the tissues to increase blood circulation and balance all types of skin, giving the skin a fresh glow. when used in the final rinse after shampooing, it helps to deeply condition hair and add shine.
