This aromatic skin tonic is a colloidal suspension of plant acids, minerals, microparticles of essential oil, and other water-soluble compounds found in Lippia citriodora. The potent energetic and therapeutic properties of lemon verbena 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.

Lovely, lovely, lovely. Anything lemon verbena has me enthralled, but this hydrosol is sublime. I’ve only used it topically so far, but eager to try it in the kitchen. I’ve now purchased it multiple times and it will be a repeat staple.
Its aroma is very sweet and slightly green and fruity with nuances of mint and a classic Artemisia undertone. Whether you seek emotional support, a natural insect repellent, or an overall body deodorizer, Sweet Annie Hydrosol offers a holistic approach to health that is worth exploring.
