Flower waters have found a special place in my beauty regimen. The first one I have come to know well is rosewater. It’s another all natural source that is beneficial for the body both inside and out.
There are numerous rosewater benefits for both the hair and skin.
This is one of those timeless products that can take the place of several other types of beauty products. You can replace your hair setting lotions, skin toners, and linen sprays with one bottle of rosewater.
Where does rosewater come from?
Flower waters are also referred to as hydrosols. According to the Suzannerbanks Blog, “hydrosols” are the water left over from the steam and water distillation of a plant or flower.
When this is done with rose petals, the by-product of this steaming process is a rose-water hydrosol.
A product labeled “flower water” usually means that the oil of the flower has been added to water. In both cases, the essence of the plant or flower is captured in the water.
You can also make your own rosewater at home by boiling fresh rose petals on the stove. After straining the petals you’re left with all natural rosewater!
I’ll be doing a video tutorial on that soon. Subscribe at the end of this article and receive notification when it’s published!
