Rosewater. Enjoy the Romantic Scent of Roses at a fraction of the cost.
Rosewater, otherwise known as Rose Hydrosol, is the results of distillation of Rose petals to obtain their essential oil.
Hydrosols or floral waters are very safe and have many of the therapeutic benefits of the parent essential oil.
Rosewater is one of my all time favorites.
I love the smell of roses but roses are so fragile and die in a few days. They are also very expensive.
Rose essential oil is a bargain at $218 for a teaspoon of oil.
Rose hydrosol has the lovely aroma of roses but at $15 for 2 oz, you can feel free to spray it all over your house if you choose.
The two-ounce bottle with atomizer lasts quite awhile and if you keep it refrigerated, when not in use, it will last for 2 years.
It is the perfect gift for anniversaries, valentines day and any special occasion or no occasion for the rose lover in your life.
I’ve even bought it for myself.
Rose water has an affinity for the heart (fourth) chakra.
The heart chakra is the center of your deep bonds with other beings, your sense of caring and compassion, your feelings of self-love, altruism, generosity, kindness, and respect. http://www.chakra-anatomy.com/heart-chakra.html
Rose hydrosol adds and retains moisture for the mature skin.
This hydrosol helps to balance hormones and may be used as a perfume.
Rosewater has been used in a sitz bath to soothe the soreness of childbirth.
