Likely, when you think about blending you think about essential oils… or perhaps smoothies, but probably not hydrosols.
We are huge fans of blending our hydrosols; not only does it give the opportunity for indescribable aromas and completely unique custom products, but it also allows you to combine the skin loving actions of your hydrosols - creating skin superfoods.
If you aren’t quite sure what hydrosols are, or why they’re absolutely incredible, check out this blog article.
OK, now that you’re thoroughly convinced that you need hydrosols in your life, let's talk about blending.
This is important with all types of blending, but especially with hydrosols. Because they are water based products, they can easily get contaminated if the proper steps aren’t taken to ensure sterility during the blending process.
That makes it sound very technical but really all you have to remember is to always use thoroughly clean, dry* containers, whisks, spoons etc. when blending.
*both cleanliness and dryness are key, if you put your tools through the dishwasher, leave them for the full drying cycle to be assured there is no residual moisture
Hydrosol Blends for Skincare
Hydrosols make the perfect facial toners, hair mists and general skin hydrators. Spritzing with them before you apply serums and creams will balance your skin as well as help it to absorb all of the beautiful ingredients you’re surely using (especially if you use our raw skincare products).
