Floral waters are a wonderful addition to your skin care routine. They lock in moisture, tone, and refresh the skin. A hydrosol (floral water), is the aromatic water that remains after an essential oil is distilled via steam distillation. Hydrosols are gentle and generally safe for children. They may be sensitizing for some individuals. Be sure to keep hydrosols out of eyes and nose. Store in the refrigerator to prolong shelf life.
