A 100% pure Hydrolat (Hydrosol) with a fresh, slightly "grassy” aroma. Chamomile (Anthemis Nobilis) is widely used for its wonderful soothing properties that calm and restore the mind and body.
This natural ingredient has great cleansing and toning properties and blends well into cosmetic bases such as creams, clays, gels and lotions. Although it is beneficial for all skin types, it is particularly useful for dry and sensitive skin.
Chamomile has gentle, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties which can help to calm, soothe and heal itchy, dry and irritated skin conditions, including skin allergies such as eczema. It can be used to soothe tired, sore eyes by soaking cotton wool pads in hydrolat and placing them on the eyes for 10 minutes. It is also beneficial as a cooling compress for the forehead to relieve headaches, tension and migraines. Another popular application is to use it as a pillow spray, as its calming properties will help promote deep, and restful sleep.
As it is so gentle and mild, Chamomile Hydrolat can even be used with small children and babies. Use it as a Room Spray to calm overactive children or try adding up to 50mls to the bath water to soothe irritated skin conditions such as nappy rash. This will also help to soothe restless infants at bedtime.
