Chamomile Hydrosol Water
Fresh chamomile flowers are used to produce many extracts including essential oil and hydrosol. There are two types of chamomile from which the hydrosol is obtained. These include German chamomile (Matricaria Chamomilla) and Roman chamomile (Anthemis nobilis). They both have similar properties. Chamomile has long been known for its calming effect on children as well as adults, making this floral water an excellent addition to room sprays, lotions, facial toners, or simply pour some into a spray bottle and use directly on your skin.
Hydrosol waters can be used in lotions, creams, bath preparations, or straight on the skin. They provide mild tonic and skin cleansing properties and are generally safe for all skin types. We manufacture our waters with their therapeutic value to the skin and body in mind, we do not market our waters as a scent additive - though of course, all waters will have a unique scent some will be significantly lighter in scent than others will this is because of the plant material they are steamed from.
If you are looking for a scent additive for your formulation that is water-based, I would suggest checking out our Essential Water categories instead of hydrosol waters if you are looking for a spot-on scent that matches essential oil. Essential waters are designed to add a scent "throw" into your formulations, whereas hydrosol waters are designed more for their benefits to the skin natural scent is just a bonus.
How to Use Chamomile Hydrosol Water?
- Calming Room Spray : Spritz chamomile hydrosol all over your room to dispel negativity, reduce tension and calm an irritated child. Make sure not to get the mist on the baby’s face or body.
- Sensitive Skin Cleanser : Make your own sensitive skin cleanser by combining ¼ cup liquid castile soap, ½ cup chamomile hydrosol, and 1 tbsp vegetable glycerin in a Pyrex measuring cup. Now gently pour this mixture into 4 oz foaming soap dispensers. Your sensitive skin cleanser is ready!
- Baby Bath Water : To your baby’s bath basin, add about 1/2 cup of chamomile hydrosol. Make sure the bath is warm enough and the chamomile hydrosol doesn’t alter the temperature of the water.
- Blond Hair Rinse : Instead of chamomile tea, you can use chamomile hydrosol as a more fragrant hair rinse. Just add ½ cup of chamomile hydrosol and ¼ cup of water to a Pyrex measuring cup. Now use this as your final hair rinse after a shower. You can do this hair rinse for blonde hair to sharpen highlights before a major event.
