Hydrosol Profile: Geranium

QuestionsBLOG-2


 

Geranium Hydrosol is much lighter in scent that the essential oil. In fact, I prefer it in room sprays since it’s lighter fragrance isn’t as overpowering!

What else can you do with Geranium Hydrosol? Check out a few other ideas below:

  • When you need a mood boost, spritz yourself with some Geranium hydrosol
  • Use 1 cup of water with 1/4 cup of geranium hydrosol in a spray bottle to mist clothing fresh out of the dryer. This accomplishes two goals, a soothing, soft scent along with loosening any last wrinkles from the garment

Hydrosol Profiles: Lavender

QuestionsBLOG


Everyone has enjoyed the profiles we have been doing on essential oils. I figured it was time to learn more about our hydrosols. Every ew weeks we will feature a different hydrosol, show you more about that specific one and then give a few ways you can consider using it in your home or with your family or pets.

First up, Lavender.

Lavender hydrosol is great for any skin type and is soft & gentle on the skin. You might expect this hydrosol to smell strongly of lavender. Don’t be fooled when you open it and it doesn’t. The scent is lighter and earthier than lavender essential oil you might be used to. Take a look at this profile and then check out the ideas for use below the graphic! This is printable {click the one at the bottom to print}, so go ahead and start a new notebook or folder of hydrosols for your reference collection!

 

LavenderHydroSpotlight

 

Suggestions for use:

  1.  When dusting furniture, spray your dust rag (lightly) with lavender hydrosol and wipe surfaces. You’ll leave a wonderful scent behind and find the chore a bit less mundane.
  2. Freshen your pets’ coat by spritzing with a 50/50 dilution of lavender hydrosol with distilled water as you groom. Not only will this reduce static & unease with grooming, but also leave your pets fur refreshed.
  3. Mist bed linens, freshly laundered clothes or pet beds with lavender hydrosol, for a calm relaxing environment in every area of your home.
