Roses and Elderflowers hold a special place in the history of beauty care. Women have been using these delightful flowers to help maintain flawless skin for generations.
Rose & Elder Vinegar can be used in a multitude of ways.
As a sunburn soother, floral vinegars can rapidly reduce the redness and pain of a light sunburn. Spray onto the affected area and let air dry. Apply as often as necessary for continued relief until the pain subsides. Severe sunburn cases should seek the advice of your physician, but cooling the damaged areas with vinegar can still be helpful.
This vinegar blend can also be used as a facial toner and astringent. Freshen up during the day or as part of your skin routine to clean and remove excess oils and tighten pores. Spritz onto a cotton square or tissue and apply to a small area to test for sensitivity. If too strong and drying for sensitive skin, dilute half and half with distilled water. If used as a facial mist spray avoid getting into the eyes.
Good quality vinegars restore the natural acid balance of the skin, leaving it soft and smooth.
By promoting circulation in the small capillaries that irrigate the skin, vinegar becomes a tonic for the complexion.
Dating back to the days of the Romans and used widely among Victorian woman, floral vinegars were common in baths, hair care, body splashes and skin toners.
Vinegar acts as an antiseptic, meaning it prevents proliferation of bacteria, viruses and yeast that could trigger infection. As a facial toner, it removes oily residue as it dissolves fatty deposits at the surface of the skin.
Roses have long been used in skin care due to their high content of vitamin C and ability to relax both inflammation as well as jangled nerves. Roses are a good combination with vinegar as they too have a tonic effect on the capillaries, reducing thread veins.
Women have long used elderflowers for their mildly astringent and stimulating properties. It was used to keep the face smooth, youthful and free from blemishes. Elder flower water alone is very good for sunburn, infusing it in vinegar enhances the therapeutic value even more.
