The Bulgarian Rosa Damascena Rose is only the most recognized and finest roses in the world bearing enormous health and beauty benefits. This delicate rose holds properties to help hydrate dry, damaged, sensitive skin and improve skin tone and texture.
Grown in Bulgaria, in a unique climate and soil and geographic conditions, Rosa Damascena is well-known for being the best oil-bearing rose worldwide. Rose petals are hand-picked and steam distilled to extract nutritious rose juices and pure rose oil. The oil obtained is the essential oil and the water portion of the distillate that drips into a collecting vessel is called "Rose Hydrosol" from Latin. By using a copper distiller, widely recognized as the best material for distilling with its natural antibiotic properties to help filter impurities, it's the way to achieve the purest scent of the plant. Do not confuse an authentic pure hydrosol with products labeled rose or floral waters where flowers are just added to liquid. Floral waters do not go through this meticulous distillation process. When shopping, expect a difference in quality and price between a hydrosol and floral water.
Hydrosols are amazing and can be utilized in many ways to revive, refresh hydrate. As a facial toner, hydrosols continue the cleansing process, refreshing pores, calming skin while adding moisture, balance and protection. Their friendly spray-on application makes them a great traveling companion when you're on-the-go. Toss in your purse, yoga bag, carry-on, desk or locker to use anytime you need a little pick-me-up. Using in your morning face routine, as an after workout refresher, body spray or even as an aromatherapy spritzer may help those experiencing fatigue or feeling overwhelmed perk-up and feel rejuvenated. Hydrosols can also be lightly misted over the face as a make-up setting spray to keep you looking fresh and put together all day.
My Alchemy Skin Care's Rose Hydrosol has been reviewed as "heavenly" and we couldn't agree more The pure rose scent is light and rejuvenating. We originally created our hydrosol for co-founder Rebecca during chemo when any scent was overpowering so we kept it really light and genuine. We recommend spritzing it onto a freshly cleansed face each morning and while the face is still damp, apply our multi-purpose Face Serum. Your skin will thank you!
Warm Weather Tip: We love putting our bottle of hydrosol in the refrigerator and spritzing cool sprays throughout the day. It enlivens both our skin and our spirit.
