Essential oil is the concentrated essence of a plant, the part which gives the plant its distinct scent. Extracted during the distillation method when the flowers are processed with steam releasing the essential oil in the flower heads in the form of vapour. The vapour then passes through a condenser which cools the mixture and separates the essential oil from the lavender water. The essential oil floats to the surface where it is collected and bottled. Rub a few drops on a light bulb indoors to scent the air or outdoors to repel insects.Use it as an insect repellant, to help heal cuts, scratches, soothe insect bites, or add several drops to a warm bath for deep relaxation.
As with some other essential oils, avoid use if pregnant. Lavender oil may also cause irritation to people that have sensitive skin. Apply a small test to skin or dilute well.
Lavender Hydrosol (aka Lavender Water) is the residual water and essential oil mixture from the steam distillation process used to make essential oils, containing all the same plant essence components, all the beneficial qualities and sweet aroma of an essential oil.
Store it in the fridge for a post exercise skin refresher or to just chill out on a hot summer’s day. Spray yourself after a bath to pamper your skin and feel refreshed. Use it as a skin toner, to add shine to your hair, as a body spray, facial spray and sunburn soother.
It also works wonderfully as a room mist, linen spray, pillow spray, or for scenting clothes when ironing. Spray hydrosol on the pillows and sheets of you and your child's bed prior to bedtime. It is also great for refreshing pet areas.
