Mild enough for newborns, calms diaper rash and irritations on the skin of babies and young children. The cool mist can aid in soothing cranky babies.
People with sensitive skin often choose hydrosols over essential oils because of their gentle nature. Lavender Hydrosol is extremely safe and can be used directly on the skin and is safe for internal use.
How to Use
Spray liberally on Face, Neck, décolleté, and hair often. Provides immediate hydration and balances pH for thirsty, dry skin and hair. Always use undiluted and on clean skin. Spray liberally for effective treatments.
Hydrosols have been used in cooking for thousands of years. Most middle eastern dishes use Rose hydrosol and Neroli hydrosol as a staple in their cooking. Here is an out-of-this-world cocktail created by Melissa in 2001.
Floral Hydrosol Cocktail
- Pour 1 T of Neroli Hydrosol, 1 T of Rose Hydrosol and 1 T of Lavender Hydrosol into 16-ounce glass
- Add 1-2 shots of good Vodka. Stir or shake.
- Add 6 ounces of San Pellegrino
- Add 1 T Agave
- Add 1 drop of Ginger essential oil
- Add Ice if needed.
- Stir again and Drink…… Amazing, right?
How Does It Work
- Prepares skin for optimal hydration and penetration of serums, moisturizers, etc.
- Helps to re-acidify the pH of the acid mantle layer of the skin, acting as a barrier to bacteria, viruses and other potential contaminants that might penetrate the skin.
- Anti- inflammatory – reduces swelling, redness and inflammation
- Astringent- Contracts, firms and strengthens skin and other tissues. Reduces secretions.
- Neat – to apply undiluted, directly on the skin
- Regulating – Helps balance and normalize body functions.
- Vulnerary – Protects and promotes skin healing, cell regenerative.

About Our Hydrosols
What are Melissa’s Botanicals Medicinal Hydrosols?
Our hydrosols are distilled in stainless steel stills and processed through certified organic methods at SAPAD located in Provence, France. True hydrosols are not essential oils added to water; they are the water part of essential oil distillation. Also known as floral waters, hydrolates, or distillates, hydrosols contain all of the water-soluble elements of a plant and are very effective for skin care, as well as extremely safe. Because they are a milder extract, hydrosols are suitable for all manner of applications where essential oils may be too strong. There is about 1-2 percent of the essential oil still present at the end of hydrosol filtration. Because of our purity and authenticity, one can use our hydrosols internally and externally liberally.
