Fresh Face Botanical Toner
Witch Hazel (Hamamelis virginiana): Witch hazel waits patiently to bloom until late autumn in our Eastern deciduous forests, bringing an explosion of unique golden flowers. With its astringent and antimicrobial qualities, Witch Hazel is particularly helpful for weepy skin conditions, local inflammations, and wounds. Its tannin content makes it ideal for toning skin and mucus membranes. Indigenous communities have used the bark as prepared tea for a variety of ailments including sore throats, coughs, sinus infections, and digestive complaints.
Tulsi (Ocimum tenuiflorum var. kapoor): Also referred to as "Holy Basil", Tulsi is named for a Hindu goddess and roughly translates to "that which is incomparable". It is a magically sweet and sacred adaptogen in Ayurveda that assists in modulating the effects of stress while lowering inflammatory load. As a member of the basil family, tulsi is rich in terpenes, such as eugenol, and antioxidant rich polyphenols. The Kapoor variety is particularly saturated with rosmarinic acid, a strong antioxidant, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory constituent.
Rose (Rosa canina): A floral nervine euphoriant that is well indicated for energetic and emotional imbalances. Rose offers itself as a powerful ally for softening and opening the heart, while also helping us to create healthy relational boundaries. Rose has a long tradition for grief and anxiety support, and is also a powerful astringent and anti-inflammatory making it a common ingredient in skincare formulas.
Calendula (Calendula officinalis): These sunny, resinous blossoms are widely known for the skin-soothing properties that are helpful for all skin types (and ages!). With anti-inflammatory, vulnerary, and antimicrobial effects, calendula is lovely for any skin irritation, wounds, and stagnated lymph. The flower essence is indicated for promoting empathetic communication and the free flow of artistic expression.
Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia): Lavender is a relaxant nervine whose floral notes are well sought after in aromatherapy. It can be supportive to those with anxiety or stuck tension. Topically, lavender is excellent for inflammation and skin irritaitons, including burns. According to Nicolas Culpeper (1616-1654), lavender is ruled by Virgo and is associated with earth and beauty.
Roman Chamomile (Anthemis nobilis syn. Chamaemelum nobile): Soothing and relaxing, Roman Chamomile is excellent for body and mind. As a hydrosol, it is lovely for tending to eczema, dry and flaky skin, rashes, acne, and inflamed mucus membranes. A compress of Roman Chamomile can be very helpful for migraines and dry, irritated eyes. Some have also found a spritz of hydrosol to be quite relaxing for both kids and adults. Its quintessential floral apple aroma is sure to lull one into plant-induced bliss.
