Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) Hydrosol
Use lavender hydrosol for skin irritations, allergic reactions, itching, eczema, first degree burns, redness, acne, and before and after hair removal. Lavender hydrosol is also useful for alleviating stress, nervousness, sleep problems, restlessness, anxiety, and depression.
Lavender hydrosol can be used as a spray or compress. It can be added to a neutral base cream. It is an excellent additive to sitz, full, and foot baths. This hydrosol is also an incredible linen spray.
Lavender hydrosol has an approximate shelf life of one year. For best results, keep refrigerated.
Because lavender hydrosol is a diluted product, it is safe to use with children.
