Rose perfumes are made from rose oil, also called attar of roses, which is a mixture of volatile essential oils obtained by steam-distilling the crushed petals of roses, a process first developed in Iran (Persia). Rose water is a by-product of this process. In Yorkshire rosewater has long been used as a flavouring for one of the regions best loved dishes; Yorkshire curd tart.
Spritz it – Rose has anti-inflammatory properties so it will offer relief to skin irritated by eczema and will reduce puffy eyes. It’s also a natural way to fight acne, soak a cotton wool pad with rose water and wipe your face, this will remove the bacteria and dirt built up all day. We sell Persian distilled rose water and our customers buy this to replace their chemical filled facial toners. You can’t go wrong with a bottle costing as little as £3.05 to fill your empty spritzer bottle.
Drink it – Rose calms your nerves, aids digestion and generally relaxes you. Try this simple recipe: Add 1 tablespoon Chia Seeds and 2 tablespoons Distilled Rose Water to one cup of water at room temperature – leave to soak for 10 minutes and then drink.
Sleep with it – Rose fragrance helps reduce feelings of anxiety in aromatherapy. When added to a warm bath, it not only relaxes you, but moisturises your body and leaves you with a hint of scent. If you have trouble sleeping, its aromatherapy properties can help you sleep more soundly – just lightly spritz it onto your pillow.
Let rose water help you start the journey to a more relaxed, less stressed you.
