Horsetail herb hydrolate

Use horsetail herb as a natural facial toner

Horsetail herb hydrosol can be used as a natural facial toner to clarify the skin and reduce blemishes. It can also serve as a refreshing facial mist to invigorate and hydrate the skin. In addition, the hydrosol can be used in homemade skin care products such as face masks or moisturizers to take advantage of its anti-inflammatory properties. As a natural alternative to commercial facial products, horsetail herb hydrosol can help soothe the skin and improve the complexion. However, individual skin sensitivities should be considered before use and a skin test should be performed if necessary.

Natural hair conditioner

For a natural hair rinse, you can dilute the horsetail herb hydrosol with water and use it as a final rinse after washing your hair. The diluted hydrosol is gently poured over the hair and not rinsed out to maximize its beneficial properties. This application helps to soothe the scalp by relieving irritation and reducing itching. In addition, the hydrosol strengthens the hair and gives it a healthy shine by strengthening the hair structure and providing moisture. Regular use can help to condition the hair, keep it smooth and reduce frizz.
