Hydrolates and their many benefits
Flower waters are related to essential oils, and while their uses and effects are similar, they keep some key differences.
Hydrolates are safe for anyone to use, from children to pregnant or nursing women, without diluting them.
Flower water can be used on its own or added to cosmetic products to enrich the formula and make it more effective. These are very potent skincare ingredients with a lot of different uses depending on the flower used.
For example, lavender water is soothing and calming, perfect for a relaxing and cleansing experience. Rose or witch-hazel water is a classic astringent and anti-oxidant, used to help with acne and enlarged pores.
