Aromatherapy: The Flower Water Secrets

Aromatherapy Secrets to Beautiful and Perfect Skin

One of the lesser known secrets of having beautiful and perfect skin is the use of aromatherapy hydrosols, also called flower waters. Their effect on skin is nothing short of miraculous, transforming desiccated, moisture-poor, sensitive skin to healthy, well-nourished, blemish-free skin in a matter of just a few applications. These amazing liquids enable the skin to naturally balance their oils to bring out the best to the surface.

What are Hydrosols?

Hydrosols are a natural by-product of essential oil distillation and are thereby cost-effective solutions. Practically any part of the plant can be a rich source of flower waters. The application of hydrosols is as simple as the effects are transformational, and it doesn’t require any professional intervention in most cases.

So the next step is to see how these natural extracts are able to effect such changes in the texture and feel of the skin. Each type of hydrosol has an individual set of effects, and choosing one that is right of your particular skin type is the key. There are various methods of application, and the toning stage of basic skin-care is where they are normally introduced, the prior and the subsequent ones being cleansing and moisturizing.

What is the Best Hydrosol for Me?


To repair damaged skin, or give back vitality to mature skin, making it beautiful and perfect, try Witch Hazel hydrosols. The high antioxidant content and quality of this hydrosol is perfect for skin that needs thorough nourishing and damage reversal. It is a gentle astringent that is also suitable for relieving pain from insect bites. In this context, however, it gives the skin a natural, young and tight feeling, almost as if youthful elasticity were magically restored to the epidermis.

Oil Control:

If you face the problem of oily skin, then Roman Chamomile might be the perfect elixir, and your very own path to beautiful and perfect skin. The astringent quality is extremely effective in controlling natural oils and will clear up any skin blemishes such as acne. It also acts as a deep cleanser, toner and makeup remover all wrapped in one great solution, so making it an essential component in your daily skincare regime is a good idea. This heaven-sent hydrosol is also very effective for other skin afflictions like sun burn, heat rashes, and unnatural reddening of the skin. It can also bring on instant relaxation and calmness when sprayed onto the face and neck area after a tough day.

Sensitivity Relief

If you’re skin is overly sensitive to the elements, or you sunburn easily, then the Citrus hydrosol of Neroli could be your dermal savior. Used in combination with lavender, it makes a perfect mix for dry skin as well. On its own, it is an extremely effective combatant of hypersensitivity of the dermis and epidermis, the top two layers of the skin.

Dehydrated Skin

For dry skin, a hydrosol of the Damascus Rose is perfect. It will effectively moisturize and rejuvenate skin where the dryness is caused by maturity or simply a lack of natural sebum, or oil that the skin releases to keep itself from drying out.

Organic hydrosols can be very effective skin care solutions, but be sure that you’re buying them from a genuine aromatherapy store. The market is rife with spurious products that may even harm your skin, let alone be beneficial. Again, remember to properly identify your skin type before you choose a hydrosol. Any skin care specialist worth her dermis should know how this is done. This is a very important step if you want to clear the path to beautiful and perfect skin for yourself.
