A wonder herb for skin with an uplifting scent, Geranium is an adaptogen, meaning it helps us adapt to the stresses of life. Known for balancing skin pH, and a natural astringent, Geranium is considered a hormone balancer, and is indicated for balancing oil production. A great go-to for redness and combination skin types.
We mist often here at Wild Hill, because we love happy skin. Sad but true, facial toners are a crucial part of skin care routines that are often skipped. A well made toner will improve skin texture, hydrate and correct pH balance, which improves skin's function as a barrier. Toners also remove any last residues of makeup or pollution, and enhance the absorption of moisturizers that follow. Not bad for one small bottle!
Hydrosols are gentle and therapeutic, with many beneficial effects coming from all the water soluble molecules extracted from the plant (as opposed to the very strong oil solubles that make up essential oils). This makes hydrosols excellent natural treatments for the skin. With a relaxing green floral scent, geranium is a cult favourite.
Use: Spray the face liberally and gently wipe away with a cotton pad. Repeat and leave on to soak in while adding serum.
