The power of Hydrosols for your beauty and skincare routine

how to use rose water in your skincare routine

Guest post by Trysh Hydrosols, also known as floral waters, are the byproducts of the distillation process to make essential oils from plants. Because of this, the fragrances of hydrosols are much less intense than those of essential oils and some users also claim that they have a “greener” fragrance. Furthermore, hydrosols have many of the benefits and chemical compounds of their source plants though not at the high concentration of essential oils, making them much more suitable for direct skin contact without dilution. One popular hydrosol that you may actually be familiar with is rosewater, which is created from the distillation of rose petals. There are a long list...

January favorites

So, January’s over. Wait, what? Weren’t we all in the xmas mood just a couple of weeks ago?

My favorite skincare oils

My favorite skincare oils

Today I’m very happy to talk to you about something that has been requested many many times: my favorite skincare oils. I’ve been using oils in my skincare for the past few years, way before the whole “coconut oil frenzy” started, as I’ve always known that pure, natural oils like olive oil was used in very simple beauty routines by my own grandmothers – extra-virgin olive oil being the jewel of the Mediterranean area. A little dab of olive oil was used to moisturize face and hair already a long time ago, when skincare creams were a luxury. The products I’m going to show you are 100% natural, cruelty-free and...
