Our 100% pure Lavender (Lavandula Angustifolia) Hydrolat (also known as a Hydrosol or Flower Water) is prized for its traditional comforting scent and its relaxing qualities which help to reduce the impact of stress on both the mind and body.
Lavender has been used since Roman times for bath, body and skincare and is suitable for all skin types particularly damaged and fragile skin as it has powerful regenerative and healing properties.
Lavender Hydrolat is an ideal ingredient for cleansing and toning and for blending with Green or White Clay to make your own deep cleansing, restorative facial masks. It can be blended with creams, lotions, gels and other cosmetic bases, and can be used to make therapeutic sprays.
It makes a lovely cooling, revitalising face or body spray for the summer months, and can be helpful for soothing sunburn, heat rash, insect bites and other skin irritations.
Its antiseptic properties are beneficial for cleansing minor wounds and it can be used in a cold compress on the forehead, neck and shoulder areas to help ease headaches and migraines. Lavender’s calming, sedative properties can also aid relaxation and promote a restful night’s sleep for people of all ages. Try adding Lavender Hydrolat to an atomiser bottle and use as a Room & Pillow Spray as and when required.
All of Base Formula’s Hydrolats are ecologically produced and free from agro chemicals.
