Helichrysum italicum Hydrosol
About Helichrysum Hydrosol
A hydrosol is the aromatic water that is the byproduct of the steam distillation of essential oil. During the distillation process, the essential oil rises to the top of the hydrosol (cooled, condensed steam) which is full of the water-soluble plant aromatics.
How to Use Helichrysum Hydrosol
- As a Facial Mist & Toner: Generously mist on face, neck & décolletage after cleansing. It can be used anytime throughout the day. If you have dry skin, it is best to immediately follow with one of our serums (while the face is still moist) to lock in moisture. Great used upon rising to ‘wake up’ the face with its enlivening energy and aroma.
Benefits: Helichrysum from Corsica is a precious treasure for the skin. It excels at enhancing skin health & beauty. This aromatic water rejuvenates, stimulates collagen production, enhances microcirculation, reduces age spots, and if used over time, reduces facial lines & wrinkles.
- As a Hot or Cold Compress: Saturate washcloth with ½ bottle cold hydrosol (refrigerated) OR warm hydrosol (heated gently on the stove—watch carefully so as not to overheat). Ring out. Fold washcloth flat and place on desired area. Leave on for 10 minutes or more. Repeat as often as desired. *Using more hydrosol for your compress or diluting it with water (up to ½) is also an option.
