Hydration is vital for healthy skin – whether you’re oily or dry – and Hydrating Elixirs are the primary source of hydration in the Laurel Skin line. We find that our customers almost always need to be using more Elixir in their skin ritual. Our two-step approach to moisturizing combines hydrosol-based Elixirs with lipid-based Serums and Balms, creating the perfect oil-water balance for healthy skin, as well as the most positive results in your Laurel Skin ritual. Think of our Elixirs as a hybrid of what other brands often refer to as facial mists and treatment serums, providing delicate water-soluble nutrients like B vitamins, botanical hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, and polysaccharides from our house made whole plant infusions. By using a Hydrating Elixir alongside a Serum and Balm from our line you are getting the widest breadth possible of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants for your skin.

Our Single Farm Hydrosols – each seeded, harvested, and master distilled all by the same hands – can be used for many different things. When using Hydrosols as skin medicine, they are hydrating and also provide a targeted skin treatment based on your choice of plant.
Beyond skin medicine, Hydrosols are body and spirit medicine. Being a single plant, they invite a deeper connection with that plant, while providing a unique aromatic experience. Visit each Hydrosol’s page to learn more about the full range of benefits they provide.
CALIFORNIA ROSE – For dry, sensitive or healthy aging skin.
CALENDULA – For sensitive or damaged skin.
CHAMOMILE – For irritated, inflamed, breakout prone skin.
* Hydrosols do not contain more complex water soluble nutrients such as B vitamins, botanical hyaluronic acid, vitamin C and polysaccharides. For that reason, we see Hydrosols as an addition to a skin ritual, not as a complete substitution for a Laurel Skin Hydrating Elixir.
