Rosewater, pure organic distillate of fresh Roses, Rosa damascena, also known as Rose Otto, grown in Bulgaria.
This variety is the ultimate scented rose, with the sweetest and strongest aroma. The scent is rich, uplifting, sensual, and used in aromatherapy to promote happiness, love, feelings of peace and wellbeing, and to ease emotional trauma and shock, especially to the heart. After Vanilla, this Rose is the next strongest scented hydrosol.
Rose is also used to balance the endocrine system and women's hormones, and to to ease menstrual symptoms especially when they are exacerbated by stress.
For skin care, most experts agree that nothing is more universally loved than rose water. It helps increase and retain moisture in the skin, is astringent to tighten pores and sagging skin, soothes sunburn, and is even antimicrobial as well as anti-aging.
