  Cucumber Hydrosol
Cucumis sativus, distilled in the USA from certified organic whole fruit.


Quantities are extremely limited.

This cucumber echoes the cool refreshing scent of the whole vegetable from with it is distilled, with almost a melon-like sweet note. Refreshing, cooling, crisply scented it makes a refreshing body splash when one is overheated.

(I was just corrected. Cucumbers are, I am told, a fruit, not a vegetable.)

Cucumbers are known for their anti-inflammatory soothing effects on the skin, and this is a wonderful soothing spray for summer rashes and itchies. It is also highly recommended as a compress for red, sore tired eyes. Just a few drops on cotton balls on your eyelids will leave them feeling soothed and "cool as a cucumber."

Susan Catty writes of Cucumber Hydrosol:

Topically it cools and tones the skin, firming delicate tissue on the face, neck and decollete. Use it in a compress to combat fine lines and diminish redness or mist throughout the day to keep skin cool, matte, and fresh.

Use as an eye compress to reduce redness, puffiness, and reduce wrinkles in delicate skin around the eyes. Internally add 1–2 teaspoons to a glass of water for a refreshing beverage, dilution just expands its energetic field. Cucumber makes a great aperitif before meals as it reduces appetite and improves digestion.

On its own in water this hydrosol will flush and clean the renal system and reduce fluid retention, mixed with a pinch of sea salt and a teaspoon of honey you’ll have an electrolyte beverage that will fully hydrate the body.

She goes on to recommend cucumber's emotional uses. Like my beloved Cistus Essential Oil, cucumber moves fluids, and allows the tears to flow, freeing blocked emotions, washing away negative and harmful energies, and helping resolve past hurts and traumas.
