Common Uses: Much like Lavender Highland essential oil, but even gentler - Lavender Highland Hydrosol is extremely calming and soothing both physically and psychologically. Keep on hand to clean cuts and scrapes. Spritz or soak cotton pads and apply as a compress for itchy bites and burns. It is also wonderful in a warm compress over aching muscles and makes a great after sport spritzer to reduce muscle pain. It can be used as an aftershave spray to prevent ingrown hairs and skin irritation.
Inside Info: For your medicine cabinet - combine with lavender essential oil, blue chamomile and aloe vera gel. Keep this handy for the cooling and soothing treatment of burns.
What is a hydrosol? Floral hydrosols or floral waters are the water soluble elements of the plant, extracted during steam distillation. These floral waters bring you many of the healing properties of the plant in a form that's very gentle and easily absorbed by the skin. They are excellent to use with babies and small children and are ideal for skin care.
