German Chamomile Hydrosol
German Chamomile hydrosol is extremely soothing for skin conditions which are hot and red, including itchy, burning eyes or irritated, chaffed skin. The beautiful thing about this hydrosol is that it has a calming effect on both the body and mind.
It is antibacterial, so it’s great for scrapes and cuts, especially for kids. It is cicatrisant, meaning that it has cell-regenerative properties, making it helpful for healing scars. It’s also very calming and can soothe burns. Hydrosols are much more mild than essential oils and can have an earthier, herbaceous tone to their aroma.
