Lilac is a powerful plant and besides beauty, it has many healing properties and is used in teas, herbal remedies, and tinctures (plant extract). Flowers have astringent, aromatic, and perhaps little bitter qualities. The lilac extract can help your skin flourish and act at the molecular level to rejuvenate the inner layers of your dermis (source of collagen & elastin etc). The potent antimicrobial effect is purifying the skin from the many bacteria which may cause local inflammation and infection. Together with its refreshing and astringent properties, it is the perfect choice for skin toner (cold or warm infusion) that will tighten your skin and reduce skin sagging and inflamed skin. Also helpful to apply for rashes, cuts, sunburns, and other skin ailments.
Lilac blossoms contain a strong active ingredient called neooleuropein which is scientifically proven to reduce inflammation and bring down a fever. Use lilac tincture in case of:
– fever and inflammation
– arthritis and arthrosis
– bronchitis and pneumonia
– bladder infection (diuretic effect)
– mood swings and stress
Tinctures are toning and healing concentrates that help alleviate a myriad of health problems fast and without harmful side effects.
