Clarifying Skin Elixir
Only 1 left in stock
The ingredients in our Clarifying Skin Elixir were selected due to being naturally astringent, anti-inflammatory and soothing. Most astringent toners have alcohol in them which leads to drying out the skin and stripping the natural PH. This skin elixir is a natural toner that will help balance your skin. Witch Hazel is a natural astringent but most contain alcohol, this is pure witch hazel hydrosol, allowing it to be astringent yet not drying at all. Calendula was selected for its soothing, healing and anti-bacterial properties. Lastly Green Tea rounds these two out with its antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. With colloidal silver and MSM for added support and skincare magic!
What are Hydrosols?
Hydrosols are aromatic waters that contain the water/aqueous imprint of plant material, much like a hologram and can be thought of in terms of homeopathy, where the idea of dilution creates a stronger product. These are suitable for children and the elderly and do not contain any essential oils, alcohol or preservatives. Due to the nature of the product they are shelf stable up to a year (possibly longer) as hydrosols are hydrating in nature because they are water and water imparts hydration to the skin.
The application of hydrosols in the skincare is limitless and one of my favorite products in my daily skincare ritual. You can use them after cleansing the skin, as they help maintain the skin’s microbiome, keeping it intact and healthy. Often referred to as the Acid Mantle, it is the first line of defense against bacteria and pathogens. It is very important to maintain a balanced Acid Mantle which Hydrosols are excellent at doing. You can mix them with an oil cleanser to make an on the spot emulsion or with our Amazing Grains as the water component.
My favorite way to enjoy the aromatic alchemy of these beautiful waters is to shower my face with them and relish in the delight and take in the scent. Knowing that as the aroma envelops my aura, the intelligent molecules are finding their way to my cells to nourish, hydrate and protect.
