Normally Floral Waters are made from hydrosol which is a by-product during the steam distillation of a plant. The oil that floats on that are the essential oil and the water that sits below are hydrosols. Hydrosol has the residual smell of the plant and is commonly use as toner and face moisturiser but natural hydrosol without preservation has a very short lifespan.
Another way of making Floral Water is to add essential oils with water.
- 10 drops of Geranium (choose your preferred essential oil)
- 30ml Water
- Spray bottle
Combine the ingredients above and shake it well every time before using.
You can use it as a face mist, facial toner, room freshener or even linen spray.
