HOW TO PREPARE HYDROLATE (FLOWER WATER) FROM YOUR FLOWERS
There are a lot of flowers in the country, and I would like to use them to improve the skin. They say that you can make cosmetic water yourself. How to do it?
- This water is called "hydrolat". It is very soft, the skin after it becomes soft and smooth.
To prepare hydrolat with your own hands, you will need a saucepan (enamel or stainless steel) with a convex lid, a bowl-type cup, dry or fresh flowers. And a sieve roughly the same size as the pan.
DIY hydrolat - master class
- All parts of the "structure" must be washed with baking soda.
- I put a couple of flat sea stones at the bottom of a saucepan (3 L) so that the sieve is slightly higher than the liquid poured. A metal sieve was installed on them.
- I poured 0 liters of water into a saucepan.
- I poured handfuls of two dried flowers into a sieve (suitable rose, linden, lavender, hyacinth, chamomile, mint, lemon balm, immortelle, lilac, mock orange, you can also eucalyptus leaves, pine needles, orange peel).
- I set a bowl on a sieve to collect condensate.
- I closed the pot with a lid (handle down) and put it on low heat so that the water boiled quietly. The optimum temperature is 90 degrees. For tightness, you can wrap the junction of the lid with the pan with foil. To make water vapor condense faster, I put ice from the freezer on top.
- After 15 minutes, the condensation can be drained off and about the same amount of water added to the saucepan. But the second condensate will be less aromatic.
For yourself beloved
To cleanse your face, take a cotton pad, moisten it with floral water and add a couple of drops of any cosmetic oil (I use rose petal or lily oil tincture). Use a disc to cleanse your face along the massage lines in the morning and in the evening, after which you can additionally tone the skin with a piece of cosmetic ice.
