Chamomile hydrosol is a gentle and soothing skincare product that is easy to make at home using a Hooloo essential oil distiller. Chamomile is known for its calming properties and is often used in skincare products to soothe and hydrate the skin. In this post, we will guide you through the steps to make your own chamomile hydrosol.
Fresh chamomile flowers
Hooloo essential oil distiller
Large bowl or container
Glass bottles with spray tops
Optional: pH test strips
Choose your chamomile flowers. You can use fresh flowers from your garden or purchase them from a local herbal supplier. Be sure to use flowers that are free from pesticides or other harmful chemicals.
Fill the Hooloo distiller with distilled water according to the manufacturer's instructions.
Add the fresh chamomile flowers to the distiller. Use about 1 cup of flowers for every 1 liter of water.
Turn on the distiller and allow it to run until all the water has been distilled. This can take several hours depending on the amount of water and flowers you are using.
Once the distillation is complete, carefully remove the chamomile hydrosol from the distiller and transfer it to a large bowl or container.
Use a pH test strip to check the pH of the hydrosol. It should be between 4.5 and 5.5. If the pH is too high or too low, you can adjust it by adding small amounts of citric acid or sodium hydroxide.
Pour the chamomile hydrosol into glass bottles with spray tops using a funnel. Be sure to label the bottles with the name of the flower and the date it was made.
Store the hydrosol in a cool, dark place such as a refrigerator. It will keep for several months.
Be sure to clean your Hooloo distiller thoroughly after each use to prevent any residue from building up.
If you don't have access to fresh chamomile flowers, you can use dried chamomile instead.
Chamomile hydrosol can be used as a facial toner, a refreshing mist, or a gentle makeup remover.
Making your own chamomile hydrosol using a Hooloo essential oil distiller is a simple and rewarding process. With just a few simple ingredients and tools, you can create a pure and natural product that is gentle on your skin. Enjoy the soothing and calming properties of chamomile hydrosol and incorporate it into your skincare routine for a healthy and radiant complexion.
