    You can purchase hydrosol from qedusa.com. Toner has astringents and hydrosol does not.

    Da Vinci Water is a great hydrosol and can be bought at www.qedusa.com
    The smell and quality are top notch.

    A hydrosol qualifies as a toner. If you have oily skin, you will want a toner that acts as an astringent. A hydrosol is not an astringent.

    Mountain Rose Herbs (dot com) has tons of hydrosols. Also a pleasure to deal with.

    I love the da vinci water. I also combine it with my french green clay, which I am wearing right now (my kids love it when I go green).

    The ancients aftershave method knows best:

    - cold water rinse
    - alum block
    - rose water
    - talc

    But moderns are fittest:

    -Use an SPF Moisturizer or SPF ASB as/if needed throughout day.
