Plant Therapy Melissa Hydrosol
Distilled from the aerial parts of the Melissa officinalis (Lemon Balm) plant, Melissa Hydrosol has a calming and fresh, earthy aroma that is known to help calm the body and uplift the mind during times of tension and unease. When you're feeling worried, spritz on the front of your shirt, pillows, or linens to help bring comfort and calm after a long, hectic day. For the skin, Melissa Hydrosol can help to clarify and calm redness and irritation.
Hydrosols are the aromatic remains following a plant’s steam distillation process. They consist entirely of cellular botanical water, which includes unique water-loving (hydrophilic) compounds that provide each hydrosol with distinct characteristics and benefits. While sharing many commonalities with their essential oil counterpart, their molecular makeup is unique enough that hydrosols often have very different aromatic profiles compared to the oil.
Made from 100% naturally-derived ingredients, this product includes 98% organic Melissa hydrosol. To ensure the safety of this product and prevent microbial growth, 2% preservative is added (Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate & Water).
To help calm irritated, dry, or itchy skin, spray the hydosol directly onto the area(s) of concern or soak a cotton round or clean cloth in the hydrosol and apply where needed.
Remove makeup or clean skin by first massaging your favorite carrier oil gently onto your face. Add the hydrosol to a cotton round and wipe away the oil, makeup, and other impurities, while helping to refresh and tone.
Spray onto bedding and linens to promote a sense of well-being.
Hydrosols are often used in creating body and bath products, room sprays, and linen mists. They are also popular for use in other herbal preparations.
