Rooibos and Lavender Botanical Tonic

* Botanical tonic sizes:

Skincare you can eat - Hydrosols or botanical tonics are produced by steam distilling medicinal plant material through an alembic potstill. The hydrosol is what remains after the essential oil has been tapped off.

The hydrosols can be consumed for the health benefits of the plants, but also work well as facial spritzers or to replace the toner in your skincare regimen. As toners, spray on liberally after cleansing, leave to settle and then wipe off with a cotton bud. They can also be used as room sprays or linen sprays, and some can be used as unique additions to cocktails, kombucha, or iced tea. In cooking and cocktails, use only a small amount as the taste is intense.

Use as a toner and facial spritzer for most skin types. May be helpful for sunburn.

Cosmetics and skincare have more effect on your health and immune system than you might care to think. Even when we are conscious about unhealthy additives in our food, we still turn a blind eye with those lotions and potions we apply to face and body. Yet beauty care can not only be toxin free, but can be truly augmented with the addition of health-giving plants, many of which have extraordinary capabilities, like restoring collagen, fighting oxidative damage, calming the nerves, repairing scars, healing burns, repelling insects and calming inflammation.

The Storytellers Fynbos Apothecary range of bath salts, creams, natural deodorants, herbal lipsticks, soaps, perfume and facial spritzers uses quality natural oils, sea salt and beeswax, infused with fynbos plants and other organically grown herbs from our gardens.
