Clary Sage Hydrosol
A hydrating and brightening hydrosol, uplifting for your spirit and skin.
This mist will leave you feeling supported and refreshed. It smells warm, sweet, a tad spicy, and bright! Clary Sage is a beautiful ally for emotionally turbulent times (hello 2020), working on an energetic level to brighten your mood and well being. It provides a moist dewy glow for your gorgeous skin, aiding in circulation while gently cleansing and toning your pores.
Repeat while anointing : I tend to my heart and support all of its desires.
This is a limited edition hydrosol - meaning I only have a certain amount of bottles because my patch of Clary Sage was on the smaller side! This hydrosol was 2 years in the making seeing as Clary Sage is a biennial plant (grows leaves the first year, and then blooms into those gorgeous purple shoots, which is what I distill, the second year!)
Our lovely hydrosols are steam distilled from spring water and homegrown herbs using our beautiful copper still.
What is a Hydrosol?
Hydro, meaning water. Sol, meaning solution.
In the most basic sense a hydrosol is a distilled plant or flower water. I use my copper still to create steam that flows upwards through whichever plant I am distilling. The water vapors rise and spiral back down through the condenser to cool and form back into liquid. The steam naturally extracts water-soluble components, essential oil molecules and the magic of the fresh plant. In each bottle, you may see little dots of oils, those are the essential oils. Instead of separating them out to bottle as E.O’s I leave them in for you to enjoy!
How do you use a Hydrosol?
In short, all the ways! The list is quite endless. My favorite way is as a face toner and hydrator. They are wonderful in foot baths, compresses, clay face masks, cream/lotion making, eye pads, etc. They can be used for depression, anxiety, burns, scrapes, headaches, sinus congestion, eczema, acne, sensitive skin, etc.
