Organic Rose Water
INCI name: Aqua & Rosa damascena flower oil.
Details: A rose water made for the purpose of being a rose water -not just a by-product of making an essential oil. You will know the difference when you smell this! The oil content is much higher so it has a stronger fragrance and this also improves the shelf life, so there is no need for a preservative or alcohol to be added. It is 100% pure rose water made from organic rose flowers grown in the rose valley beneath the Balkan mountains in Bulgaria. Of course, the roses are a key ingredient in this product but so too is the water used in the distillation process and this comes from a natural underground lake formed from water coming down from the mountains. A perfectly constellated place that has been producing this divine product since 1909.
Use: I love to use it as a toner or tonic after cleansing and before moisturising as it has natural astringent properties, but it is also very useful to spray on your face and body through out the day when you feel hot or stressed -the scent alone helps to melt tension and bring you back to your body. It is a key ingredient in my Bespoke Face Creams and can also be used in cooking - click here for the Honey & Rose Panna Cotta Recipe.
