Description

Rose Hydrosol, aka Rose Flower Water or Rose Water

Rose Hydrosol: Hydrosols are also called Flower Waters, Hydroflorates, Floral Waters, Distillates and Hydrolats, although the term “flower water” has occasionally been used incorrectly to describe products made by adding a little essential oil to ordinary water. Our true Rose Hydrosol is produced in Turkey, a traditional center for rose distillation, from the beautiful Rosa damascena.

Rose Hydrosol is very soothing and relaxing and has the lush, heady aroma of roses in a lighter scent than found in the essential oil. It makes an indulgent body spray and has been praised as a restorative toner for the skin. Our beautiful, luxurious Rose Hydrosol is produced in Turkey.

Hydrosols are produced during the steam distillation process. Plant material is placed in the still along with water and heat is then applied to produce steam. This steam extracts the essential oil from the plant material and is then condensed (liquefied). The essential oil floats to the top of the water and is eventually separated from the water once the distillation is complete.  The water that remains once the essential oil has been taken off contains traces of essential oil together with some non-volatile constituents that were also extracted; this is the hydrosol.

Rose Hydrosol is also frequently referred to as “Rose Water” and has been used for centuries in cosmetic preparations and as an ingredient in some Middle Eastern foods.  It’s a great way to experience the classic, romantic aroma of Rose. Rose Water makes a luxurious skin toner and feels wonderful spritzed on the face. It has calming and relaxing qualities.

You might find it interesting to compare the aroma of our Rose Hydrosol to that of our exqusite Rose Otto Essential Oil.

Note that Flower Waters / Hydrosols have a shorter shelf life than essential oils, so we always buy in small batches and replenish our stock often. To extend the shelf life of your Rose Hydrosol, store in a cool dark area or refrigerate. Spritzing a Hydrosol that has been chilled can feel extra refreshing.
