“A floral, sweet scent; instantly recognizable, although it has an added strong honey overtone and is deeper, more base-note-like, than the oil. If an azure summer sky at four P.M. had a smell, this would be it.” Suzanne Catty, Hydrosols: the Next Aromatherapy.
Lavender hydrosol is excellent for all skin types when used for skincare. It has regenerating effects on damaged or fragile skin.
