Floral waters are great for the skin because they allow moisture to retain in the skin and boost hydration. They are loaded with antioxidants and serve a great purpose. The floral extractions allow more vitamins to reach past the skins surface. They are great at protecting the skin from free radicals and helps with cell turn over. We have two different recipes one for dry or hydrated skin and one for oily over productive skin to create balance.

Ingredients: Distilled Water, 1 Pound Lemongrass Stalks (cut rinsed in cold water) (if no stalks are available, you can opt in for dried lemongrass), 1 Spray Bottle, Stainless Steel Pot, Stainless Steel Strainer, Glass Bowl, Spoon
