Hydrosol Mix of The Week - Frankincense and Lavendar
When I test hydrosol mixtures, I will usually combine them with a few tried and true active ingredients (moisture-binding extracts), then give the solution time to 'marry' (read: I let the concoction sit undisturbed for about 24 hours before use).
It will then be tested as a skin tonic (on the face after cleansing) and skin drench and/or mist (on body after showering).
This allows me to get a feel for how the mixture behaves for different functions and whether or not the scent changes character over time. This past week I have been testing a Frankincense (INCI: Boswellia Carteri) and Lavender (INCI: Lavendula Angustfolia) hydrosol mix to see how these two 'feel about each other'.
