Rosewater. Even just to say it, there is something smooth, delicate and sensual about it.

Known as a beauty potion that has been used since ancient Egypt by Ms Cleopatra herself, and has stood the test of time as it is still known as a beauty potion to this very day.

Rosewater has many uses and benefits in food, drinks, for health, etc. with its number one use being for hair and beauty.

There is no mistaking why rosewater has been used for thousands of years for its beauty properties and why it is still going strong and being incorporated into many everyday skincare routines, especially as a toner.

Rosewater and rose oil are made by:

  • the extraction of the oil from rose petals or
  • by steeping the rose petals in water or distilling rose petals with steam to get rosewater

The contents of the rose are then produced as a beauty ingredient in the form of an oil, water, cream, or spritz.

So grabbing yourself a simple bottle of pure rosewater and some cotton pads are just enough to get started to begin reaping the rewards and benefits of what rosewater has to offer and what you will be thankful for.
