The distillation of our own precious Antique Garden roses, (Rosa damascene) provide a plant product with over 1000 different components …. a fragrance of infinite complexity! Antidepressant, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, astringent, as well as, uplifting and soothing to emotions.
Hydrosols are co-produced with essential oils during the steam distillation. Clinically, the chemical components in the hydrosol are primarily acids, which are hydrophilic(water-loving). Why do they work? They acidify the water, which is beneficial to the skin or in the body. Hydrosols act as a healing, anti-inflammatory and mild, but therapeutic antiseptic. Bacteria do not live well in acidic environments. This makes hydrosols great addition to skin care products as astringents, or as room sprays and various aerosol or skin preparations. 2oz
