This aromatic skin tonic is a colloidal suspension of plant acids, minerals, microparticles of essential oil, and other water-soluble compounds found in Salvia mellifera. The potent energetic and therapeutic properties of black sage 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.

The black sage hydrosol is a favorite in my hydrosol rotation.
I love having one or two single hydrosols in my collection. This is a lovely single hydrosol which refreshes my skin and does indeed calm my mood. I use this on my face as well as on my hair. I love that GARA provides multiple types of sage and provides a good amount of information about their historical uses and scents. I do wish there were a tool to help you pick your sage and in the future I hope that GARA considers providing some blends.
Every product that I have ever tried from GARA is top notch! Absolute gorgeous quality. You can tell by how these products feel on your skin, the way they smell, and the way they look, that Gara puts so much love and intention into the process of making all of these beautiful organic products. The absolute best skin care products out there! All of the hydrosol’s are my life force
Last March, a group of women gathered for a photo shoot. I was recently looking over these photos and wanted to share with you. The depth of the experience is hard to capture in single moments, but the shoot in its entirety tells a magical story. A story of women and growth, fertility and abundance, sacrifice and death.
