Mist onto face, neck and chest after cleansing, or whenever your skin needs a boost. Your hydrosol may be used as a therapeutic mist or as a hair and scalp tonic, and can be added to baths or diffusers.
When using the Bay Laurel Hydrosol for lymphatic support, spray directly onto affected area. Gently massage the area for 10-15 minutes. Repeat several times per day. Make sure you drink plenty of water and move the lymph with rigorous physical movement.
Store in a cool, dry place. Do not expose to direct sunlight or heat. For a cooling mist, store in the refrigerator. Discontinue use if irritation occurs. Use within 12-16 months of distillation date.
This aromatic skin tonic is a colloidal suspension of plant acids, minerals, microparticles of essential oil, and other water-soluble compounds found in Laurus nobilis. The potent energetic and therapeutic properties of bay laurel are concentrated in this pure, undiluted hydrosol.
As they are naturally acidic, hydrosols help to balance the pH of the skin, regulate oil production, and clear problematic or irritated skin. This herbal solution also contains water from the plant itself, along with the elemental essence and life force of the plant.

This is another winner from Gara. A bit more savory than the ones I’ve bought before (I typically lean toward fragrant citrus or delicate floral). Am thrilled that I took a chance as this is lovely on the skin; calming, hydrating, and smells wonderful. I suspect this will be a great asset for a moment of zen, which long days on video calls seem to demand.
