How is rosewater made?
Benefits of Rose Water:
Referred to as the "Queen" amongst essential oils, rose water is healing, moisturizing and uplifting. In aromatherapy it is believed to open the heart chakra, and create a feeling of being loved, hence it's use in marriage ceremonies in India to welcome guests. We love that rose water is combative against aging and soothes irritated skin; you simply spray some on to feel the benefits. The following are some additional benefits of rose water:
- In aromatherapy the scent is used to give the person a sense of being loved.
- It contains high concentrations of vitamin C, helping to brighten your complexion.
- It contains a cocktail of vitamins so it is the perfect anti-oxidant.
- Rose water can be used as a toner to balance the pH of your skin, yet it doesn't contain any alcohol.
- It is calming and soothing, so it is the perfect remedy for stressed out or irritated skin (Do you have a sunburn or an allergy to something? Spray some rose water or dab some on your face preferably with fingers rather than a cotton pad.)
- It has been said that rose water sprayed over a baby's crib will have them sleep better, as it will calm them down.
- It counteracts the fatiguing effects of cell phones and computers by restoring the integrity of your electromagnetic field.
- It can be used as eye drops.
- Rose water is absolutely 100% safe to ingest as it is used for cooking in many Middle Eastern food dishes.
