Chamomile Hydrolat is frequently used as a natural cleanser and skin toner and is particularly suited to dry, sensitive or irritated skin.


Origin


This popular hydrosol derives from the delicate white petals of the roman chamomile flower (Anthemis nobilis). Chamomile is one of the most ancient medicinal herbs and can be traced back as far as the ancient Egyptians who used it as a cure for fever and for cosmetic purposes! It is also believed that the essence was used as a primary ingredient in their embalming oil.


Skin


Chamomile Hydrolat has wonderful healing, restorative properties which are ideal for dry, sensitive and problem skin types. Its gentle anti-inflammatory and antiseptic action also helps to soothe inflamed, irritated skin conditions including acne, blemishes, nappy rash and skin allergies such as eczema.


It is most commonly used a natural skin toner to calm and restore the skin. Apply to the face with a cotton pad after cleansing. Alternatively use an atomiser and spray a fine mist onto the face, keeping your eyes closed.


It can also be used to soothe tired eyes: Soak two cotton pads and rest them over the eyes for 10-15 minutes. The calming properties of the Chamomile will help to reduce inflammation and puffiness.


Mind


Finding it difficult to wind down before bed or to maintain a deep restorative sleep cycle? Try spraying Chamomile Hydrosol onto your pillows. The soothing fragrance is widely reputed to calm the mind and promote restful sleep. It can also be useful for calming overactive children.
