Grapefruit Hydrosol has an aroma very similar to the essential oil (tart, citrusy and sweet) with a refreshing and energising sensation. Hydrosols are made during the steam distillation processthat produces both essential oils and hydrosols, giving the hydrosol many of the same beneficial properties as the oil in a gentler, safer form.
Grapefruit Hydrosol is ideal for use as an after shower full body spray, a toner for oily skin and a rinse for oily hair. Gentle enough for children, substitute hydrosol for water in skin care preparations, toners and room/linen sprays.
Citrus Linen/Room Spray- Add 5 drops lemon, 5 drops sweet orange and 2 drops peppermint essential oils to a 100 ml spray bottle with 1-2 tbsp alcohol. (I use vodka or rubbing alcohol)
Swirl gently to combine then add 30 ml purified/filtered water and top up with grapefruit hydrosol. Shake before each use. Lasts for over 500 sprays.
After-Shower Spray- In a 100 ml bottle add 1/8 tsp Aloe Vera 200x concentrate powder or 2 tbsp Aloe Vera gel, 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar, and 10 drops total essential oils. Top with hydrosol and shake to combine. Spray liberally over face and body after a shower to close pores, firm, hydrate and smooth skin. Smells delicious too!
Recommended EO's- 4 drops Grapefruit, 1 drop Tea Tree, 1 drop Geranium, 3 drops Frankincense.
