Botanical names: Pelargonium capitatum and Melissa officinalis

Origin: Washington, USA. (Distiller is certified organic)

Distilled: September 2019

Shelf Life: about 2 years

Personal Notes: I use this hydrosol with my Moroccan face mask and it provides a nice balance for my skin which is amazing! 

Aroma: With this co-distillation of Geranium and Lemon Balm, you will find the aroma is beautifully light, floral, sweet, and has a hint of citrus which makes it very refreshing and cooling.

Notes from the distiller: This hydrosol is what my distiller refers to as a "gem-codistill." It is a codistillation of Geranium Rose and Lemon Balm leaves that is very refreshing! My distiller is USDA Certified Organic out of Washington.

Other: Geranium hydrosols in general have some fantastic properties and uses. In fact, Geranium is thought to have regenerative properties which makes the hydrosol a wonderful toner for maturing skin! It is also said to help with hormonal imbalances that can cause fluctuations in your body temperatures.  Lemon Balm (Melissa) is also very healing for the skin. It can be used if you have eczema, inflammations and rashes on your skin, and as a general skin tonic.

Hydrosols are aromatic floral waters that contain the hydrophillic components of essential oils left from the steam distillation of plant material. They can be used for a wide range of purposes as toners, tonics, energizers, and other natural functions.

Usage Ideas:

  • Use as a balancing toner
  • Use as a substitute for water in clay masks for additional benefits
  • Use as a body spray
  • Use as a room spray
  • Use during acneic breakouts
  • Use during hormonal concerns
  • Use as a hair mist

To get the most use of your hydrosols, I recommend storing them in cold, dark places or refrigerators. The average shelf life is approximately 1-2 years for this hydrosol. 

This hydrosol is packaged in a clear glass 2 oz bottle or 4 ounce bottle with an atomizer so it is ready for immediate use. All 8 ounce bottles are packaged in a cobalt blue PET plastic with a disc cap to avoid potential breakage during transit.

Geranium & Lemon Balm Co-Distill Hydrosol
This is another hydrosol that I have recently tried and I like it (what's not to like!). It has pleasant scent--smells like fresh pumpkin seeds to me, and I am sure that may be different for others. As with some of the other hydrosols I've purchased, it is refreshing and cooling to the skin.

I LOVE the Geranium &

I LOVE the Geranium & Lemon Balm Hydrosol. I use it on my face in the morning before putting on my make-up and at night before bed. I have given up on other moisturizers and my skin has never looked better. I suffer from adult acne and Rosacea and both have almost disappeared. So happy I ran into Lola at the Farmer's Market!

Thank you Rebecca! This is my go to toner for my skin, too!

Best hydrosol EVER! Makes a perfect facial toner, and has helped ease a rash from DIY deodorant that contained baking soda. The smell is beautiful. I love it!

Smells wonderful! I use it for facial toner before I put on moisturizer, sometimes I add a little witch hazel to it. It works great :grin:

I look forward to using this toner everyday. My face has always had some redness to it but since using this toner it has become more calmer looking and refreshing looking.
