The “all-purpose” essential oil plant also yields an “all purpose” hydrosol. Lavender Hydrosol is gentle, balancing for all skin types, cooling in summer’s heat, soothing sunburns, healing irritation, gently tones oily, dry, and mature skin, cleanses gently and safely. Lavender has always been recommended for fragile or damaged skin. The hydrosol makes a wonderful ingredient for face masks for all skin types, a gentle toner or cleanser; and a great mister to ease sunburn or windburn.
Emotionally, Lavender Water is relaxing and revitalizing. It can ease stress and reduce mental fatigue. Lavender is an “adaptor,” adapting itself to your body and your psyche’s needs, soothing or revitalizing as needed. Jeanne Rose recommends it as a remedy to jet lag.
This lovely distillate is a wonderful addition to creams and lotions, and Colleen K. Dodt recommends it for infant care.
I like to use it as a linen spray, just a tiny spritz on the pillow on a sleepless night. One young friend uses it as “monster spray” when her little one is afraid of monsters under the bed or in the closet. Safe and gentle enough to let the child banish the monsters all by himself.
This is one hydrosol I don’t use internally, whether full strength or diluted, I honestly don’t enjoy its taste.
Please be aware that Lavender Hydrosol does not smell the same as the essential oil. No hydrosol truly matches the essential that is produced with it, but Lavender seems to vary more widely. The aroma probably differs because the linalyl acetate is not present the same ratio as in the essential oil, I personally prefer the crisp slightly spicy aroma of the hydrosol to that of mose Lavender essential oils.
Principal constituents: linalol, linalyl acetate, terpinen-4-ol, beta caryophyllene, cis beta ocimene
