About Sage Hydrosol
What is a hydrosol?
Hydrosols are aromatic waters produced when fresh leaves, fruits, flowers, or other plant materials go through the steam distillation process. While their properties and aromas are similar to their essential oil equivalents, they are much softer and gentler, making them safe to use without additional dilution for people of all ages.
Sage hydrosol is made from the plant with the botanical Salvia, and possesses an aroma consistent with the fresh herb. Pleasant and herbaceous, sage hydrosol is energizing and uplifting. With its anti-inflammatory, antiviral and antibacterial qualities, this hydrosol helps to eliminate skin issues while gently reducing inflammation and wrinkles.
You can use sage hydrosol as a single ingredient or combine with other rich hydrosol such as peppermint or a citrus scent like lemon balm. Use in a water based diffuser for aromatherapy benefits.
Using Sage Hydrosol
Reduces Wrinkles- Your skin loses its elasticity when an enzyme called elastase breaks down proteins and results in wrinkles being formed. With strong anti-inflammatory and antibacterial agents, these floral waters help to soothe, cleanse and tighten skin.
Tones Skin- Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, lemon balm hydrosol is used to soothe the skin as a cooling agent while its anti-bacterial and hydrating compounds make an excellent toner. Lemon balm hydrosol tightens and refines pores which will help regulate the number of impurities the skin takes in.
Reduces Breakouts- Sage hydrosol benefits provide an anti-inflammatory action that may prove useful for alleviating redness and swelling associated with acne outbreaks. It has a wonderful soothing, anti-inflammatory, and antiviral component which makes it fantastic for irregular breakouts.
Astringent- Helps in shrinking skin pores and further absorbs excess oil from the skin, thus helping to even out the skin’s complexion. It not only shrinks the skin pores but also removes the dirt and further controls oil secretion making it look healthier.
