Hydrosol Facial Toners
Wild As The Wind Hydrosol Toners are very gentle and beautifully fragrant. They can be used in a number of ways, and can even be used as a cooling, healing spritz when you are hot and flustered during a trying summers day…
They are also exceptionally helpful in delivering all of the benefits of essential oils, when used as a body spray, for children and adults.
Hydrosols, when used as a toning agent for facial skin, are also deeply cleansing. To enjoy this benefit of Hydrosol Toners, simply remove your makeup, with a good makeup remover, and then cleanse and tone with your Hydrosol Toner.

Wild As The Wind Hydrosol Toners Are Uber Economical!
Wild As The Wind Toners contain some of the most deeply healing, expensive essential oils that money can buy. Using Wild As The Wind Hydrosol Toners is a great way of accessing the healing properties of these important essential oils without having to spend a small fortune on the actual essential oils themselves.
Plus, Hydrosol Facial Toners prepare our facial skin for the optimal absorption of our favourite facial oil, which means you will need less face oil after using a Toner than you would need if you don’t use one… This makes Hydrosol Toners doubly economical!
Using Hydrosol Toners
There’s more than one way to use your Hydrosol Toner. You can use it as a spritz in summertime, and you can use it as a cleanser as well as a toner before applying your moisturising facial oil.
Use Hydrosol Toners to tonify your face prior to moisturising with a facial oil. Or use them to gently cleanse your face after removing any makeup.
Hydrosol Toners For Spritzing
Hydrosol Toners can be used as a spritz after you have removed your makeup. Simply close your eyes and spray your Toner directly onto your face. (Follow directions below…
Or, you can use your Toner as a spritz to refresh you on a hot, sunny day.
Hydrosol Toners For Toning
Close your eyes and spray three or four squirts of Hydrosol Facial Toner directly onto your face. Allow this to sit on your face whilst you rinse a Muslin Cloth, or equivalent, in hot water.
Wring your Muslin Cloth out well before using it to massage your face from your brow to your chin / top to bottom. Rinse regularly and always apply to your face when hot.
Afterwards, apply your moisturising facial oil whilst your face is still damp, thereby locking in some of the moisture from your Hydrosol Toner.
Hydrosol Toners For Cleansing & Toning
Hydrosol Facial Toners are not designed to remove oil based makeup, but they are great for removing daily dirt that can build up on an unmade-up face. Spray up to ten squirts of Hydrosol Toner onto a Muslin Cloth, or reusable Cotton Pad, and gently cleanse your face, starting with your eyes, then forehead, before making your way down your entire face and neck.
The reason we start with our eyes is because the eyes are very absorbent and if we cleanse other parts of our face first we are likely to deposit bacteria, viruses and other undesirable things into our eyes. This can fast-track infections into our eyes and, therefore, the rest of our body.

Hydrosol Facial Toner Testimonials
Hello Rachel I’m back for more of your lovely Rose cleanser/toner
Love your toner, super feeling left on face when used.
“Well after many, many years of wasting thousands of pounds on market leader products and also some so called natural products I can now say I’ve found these wonderful organic natural miracles in two bottles, [FACIAL OIL No. 2 & No. 8 Starter Kit] …both very different, but equally just as good as each other. My face has never looked & felt so good. I get the best night’s sleep too. If like me you think they’re pricey, don’t! When used as instructed, these little bottles are super powerhouses that work magic, trust me I’m living proof. You only need a few drops so when you break it down it’s peanuts! Please be assured this is a 100% genuine review. By the way to get the best out of these products you need to use the cleanser/toner first.”
Christine from Derbyshire
I really love your products and the skin of my face looks very good since I use the face oil and rose otto cleanser / toner.
I always used some make up but since I met you at the market in Glastonbury something changed and since then I only use the face oil and don’t use any make up.
I love using your cleanser/toner because [of] the easy spray bottle. The scent is heavenly and feminine, and when I wipe my lotion soaked cotton pad over my face it leaves a warm even glow.

Warnings & Contraindications
Using Hydrosol Toner couldn’t really be simpler or safer.
However, it is always recommended to do a skin patch test on the soft skin of the underside of the forearm, prior to using any product on the face.
Very occasionally someone will have a reaction to the essential oil content in Hydrosol Toners. If you are the one in a thousand people, then rinse the affected area with cold water. Soap can be used also if you prefer.
