PROPERTIES OF LAVENDER HYDROSOL
Ideal PH for the Skin: Lavender is rightly famous for its regenerating effects on damaged or fragile skin. Add it to masks with oatmeal for a deep cleanse that does not dry out; use it daily as a make-up remover and cleanser, applying it with a cotton wool pad. Mist your face and neck throughout the day to combat excessively dry atmospheres. Spray the skin before and after shaving or depilation to reduce inflammation, achieve a closer shave and prevent ingrown hairs. Indispensable for travel skin care. Use it on planes, all over the body, including feet and legs; take it to warmer climates to soothe sunburn, heat rash, sunstroke, rashes, insect bites and itching.
Ideal for Children: Its sweet and cheerful aroma makes lavender a natural product for children. Use it to cleanse cuts and scrapes (also for adults); a lavender kiss 'really improves'. Use it to calm nervous moods and end tantrums, add it to bath water or spray it directly on the bed for a restful sleep. Little girls love having their own scent and this does not cause allergies or skin reactions. Lavender is fabulous for babies from birth and can be added to the bath, used to clean baby's bottom or combined with chamomile for nappy rash. A mist in the air of the baby's room or a spray on the parents' clothes before tucking them in will help facilitate naps and bedtime.
Calming and Refreshing: for body, mind and spirit, lavender is a refreshing spray for the home or office or in the car to calm, clean and refresh in traffic: Goodbye road rage. Use it undiluted in a compress on the neck, shoulders and forehead for headaches.
Antiseptic: can be used on sensitive skin, even on combination and oily skin because it prevents and treats infections and the proliferation of germs and bacteria.
Decongestant: important decongestant and de-reddening action of lavender hydrolate, especially when the skin has dermatitis, eczema and acne. In addition to relieving redness, lavender water acts by visibly reducing the problem.
Keeps Insects Away: even though we find lavender scent soothing, insects seem to think otherwise.
