How is lavender hydrosol produced?

Thanks to its purifying, soothing, and astringent properties, lavender is used to care for combination to oily skin, blemished skin, or even sensitive skin. Suitable for daily application, lavender hydrosol is obtained by steam distillation of the flowers. We will explain the manufacturing process of the hydrosol.

How to produce lavender hydrosol?

Hydrosol is obtained by distilling a part of a plant with steam. The floral water produced thus contains all the properties of the plant. In practice, the water and the part of the plant to be distilled are placed in a container that is heated to a high temperature. With the heat, the water evaporates, rises through a conduit, which passes through cold water, into another container. The passage of steam through the cold conduit creates water droplets that contain the properties of the plant. The active ingredients in the hydrosol are less concentrated than in essential oil. As a result, hydrosol can be used by pregnant women.

What are the benefits of lavender hydrosol?

Lavender hydrosol is suitable for all skin types, particularly combination to oily skin as well as acne-prone skin. Thanks to its balancing and regenerating properties, lavender hydrosol contributes to the regulation of sebum. It cleanses and purifies the skin, resulting in a unified complexion.

Lavender hydrosol is also suitable for sensitive skin, as it is soothing. It thus relieves irritations and itching caused by inflammation due to external aggressions. Thanks to its regenerative properties, lavender promotes cellular renewal, thereby accelerating skin healing.

How to use lavender hydrosol?

The hydrosol is suitable for dull and tired skin, combination to oily skin, acne-prone skin, and sensitive skin. Its daily application revitalizes the skin surface, tones it while calming inflammations. To enjoy all the benefits:

  1. Begin by preparing your skin to receive the treatment by cleansing and drying it.

  2. Then apply the lavender hydrosol using a cotton pad directly onto the skin.

  3. Then, use your moisturizer according to your skin type.

It's important to remember that oily skin also requires appropriate hydration. In this case, to combat the shiny appearance of the skin throughout the day, apply lavender hydrosol upon waking before your mattifying serum.

Opt for a hydrosol obtained through distillation of fine lavender plants sourced from organic farming, which is guaranteed to be free of chemical products.

How to preserve lavender hydrosol?

Hydrosol is a delicate preparation that is sensitive to heat and light. Therefore, it should be stored away from sunlight and heat. It can be kept cool for a refreshing effect when applied during the summer months. This results in skin that is purified, toned, and refreshed.

Opt for lavender to purify and repair oily skin. Thanks to its astringent action, lavender hydrosol tightens the pores. It can be mixed with green clay to create a purifying mask for oily and blemished skin. This mask should be applied once or twice a week to achieve results.
