Wild Hill Botanicals Fireweed Toner
Fireweed (Epilobium angustifolium) is the most abundant flowering perennial in the Northwest. A gentle healer, fireweed is anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and full of Vitamin C. Studies show its compound Oenethin-B effectively combats the bacterial overgrowth implicated in acne.
Hydrosols are gentle and therapeutic, with many beneficial effects coming from all the water solubles molecules extracted from the plant (compared to the very strong oil solubles that make up essential oils) making them excellent natural treatments for daily use on the skin.
Sad but true, facial toners are a crucial part of skin care routines that are often skipped. A well made toner improves skin texture, hydrates and corrects pH balance, which improves skin's function as a barrier. Toners also remove any last residues of makeup or pollution, and enhance the absorption of moisturizers that follow.
