Lavender hydrosol for skin care:
Lavender hydrosol can be used for all skin types. It is balancing to skin and can be helpful for redness or acne.
Facial cleanser/toner: The hydrosol can be used straight up as a gentle cleanser or a facial toner. Keeping a little in a spray bottle will allow you to spritz some on your face daily. The beauty of hydrosols is that they are gentle enough to be used everyday.
Body Spray: Spritzing your body with hydrosol after a shower will not only give your skin a light scent, but it can be helpful for dry skin.
Make lotions: Making lotions is an advanced DIY project since water based cosmetics require adequate preservation to avoid dangerous bacterial growth. It is not as scary as it sounds though.
Sunburns: Since lavender oil has a famous reputation for use with burns, it makes sense that the hydrosol is cooling and soothing to sunburns. Using it in a spritzer bottle makes it easy to apply. Some people mix it with witch hazel when using as a sunburn spray.
Linen Spray/Room Spray: Many people use floral waters to gently fragrance their bedsheets or other linens. This is an especially nice use for insomniacs.
It also makes a natural substitute for an air freshener. If you have an ultrasonic diffuser, you could use a little hydrosol instead of water.
Laundry: You can use a little hydrosol in the rinse cycle of your washing machines to lightly freshen your clothes or even using it in irons instead of water. In both cases, test first to ensure you don’t damage your clothes (or your iron!).
Cleaning: Many people use this versatile liquid to clean their house with. It seems there is nothing you can’t clean with it, but it is especially noted for cleaning glass, chrome and stainless steel without streaking.
