A distillation of fresh balsam fir needles harvested from the highest peaks in the Catskill Mountains.
Naturally astringent and antibacterial, this pure hydrosol makes a beautiful toning mist applied just after cleansing.
Hydrosols are the cellular waters of a plant, containing their entire immune systems, essential oils, phytonutrients, and otherwise delicate and hard to extract constituents. The waters themselves are naturally slightly acidic, just like our skin, aiding in balancing the pH and restoring the skin’s delicate acid mantle, which is constantly being put off balance from soap, hard city water, and the ongoing barrage of environmental impact.
Hydrosols quench the skin and allow greater permeation of creams, moisturisers and oils. They’re gentle and effective for everyone, including children and pets. These hydrosols are distilled in a small-batch copper still using fresh plant material and hand-collected mountain spring water.
Spritz on the face after cleansing, followed by an oil or moisturiser to help keep hydrated. Spray throughout the day to maintain hydration, refresh and uplift.
Tip: Use as a natural room spray to take you to the dense evergreen forests of the northeast.
