Hydrosol Skin Mist Giveaway

I just love it when people ask me about ingredients. Anette at BeautySpace asked me about hydrosols not too long ago and this inspired me to do a little hydrosol skin mist giveaway before we get to the next giveaway batch of freebie body butter. (it must be giveaway season!)

Have You Ever Tried a Hydrosol? 
If not, here's your chance. I'm giving away 5 purse-sized samples of the Real Deal – the Queen of Skin Care – 100% pure organic rose hydrosol. Read on to learn about hydrosol (cuz it's really cool stuff that you want to know), then drop a comment below to enter.

How is Hydrosol Made?
To produce a hydrosol (and many essential oils), herbs, plants (or, in this case, organically grown Damask Roses) are distilled with pure spring water that is heated and steam-pressed through the rose petals. To get the absolute most out of the roses, they are distilled within a few hours of being picked. The steam helps release the essential oils from the plant material. The released oils and steam pass through a cooling process (a series of swirly distiller-tubes) that turns the steam back to liquid. The oils and liquid are then carried along more (not quite so swirly) distiller tubes and finally deposited in a container where the essential oils naturally rise to the surface and float around, waiting to be skimmed off and bottled. After the essential oils are collected, the remaining liquid is – you guessed it – the hydrosol.


What's So Special About Hydrosol?
Every hydrosol carries a small amount of the oil-soluble, and a bigger amount of the water-soluble active ingredients from the original plant – it's aromatic power-water that offers all kinds of benefits. For example, rose hydrosol is an all-natural, wonderful skin tonic that gently tones and moisturizes and is ideal for all skin types. It also has an exquisitely delicate scent that is positively mood-lifting.

Apart from being wonderful end products, hydrosols also bring an extra-luxurious and skin-nourishing boost to creams and lotions when they are used as the liquid base instead of water. (all of my products use hydrosols instead of water).

How Do I Get One?
The rules are very simple. Drop a comment below before August 1 (at 12 noon Copenhagen time). As in earlier giveaways, my neutral and completely unbiased husband will be asked to pick 5 random names from the entries. The winning 5 names will be announced here on August 2. Good luck!
