Mist onto freshly cleaned skin before moisturizer. Balances PH of skin. Hydrosols can also be used throughout the day or before bed on face, body, and hair. We love to use California Sagebrush Hydrosol as a refreshing astringent toner as well as an 'aura' cleanser. Great for when you need to smudge and cleanse yourself or surroundings.

A Note On Hydrosols...
Hydrosols are the condensate water co-produced during the distillation process of plant material. They are not distilled water with essential oils added, nor are they the same as herb teas & tinctures. Through the distillation process the volatile oils of the plant matter become a colloidal suspension, and contain all of the healing properties of the plant in every drop. Humans have been distilling plants for their essential oils and hydrosols for thousands of years. We distill our hydrosols and essential oils in a copper still to naturally preserve the anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties of our ingredients.
