Our Rose Hydrosol comes to us from the same producer who provides us with our Rose Oils. The Rose Water, Hydrosol, has a sweet rose aroma but please know it is not close to the strong aroma of Rose Otto or Absolute.
Rose water is wonderful to use for facial compresses, diffusing, or use in creams and lotions.
If you have used Rose water in the past you will be very happy with this newest lot. If you have never used Hydrosols, please order a sample FIRST.
For long-term storage, Hydrosols/Waters, should be transferred to sterile glass containers with sterile caps. To avoid contamination we should NOT touch bottle rims, or inside bottle caps with fingers, or pour unused hydrosols back into the container. We should avoid direct sunlight and avoid extreme heat for long periods of time. Refrigeration can assist in extending the shelf life of hydrosols.
Our Hydrosols are tested every 90 days for fungal and microbial contamination.
