About the Organic Rose Water

This pure and very special rose water is made from dew covered rose blooms gathered from daybreak through the mid-morning during the flowering season. The daily harvest is steam distilled directly on the farm giving the freshest and most vibrant of rose waters.

This rose water is distilled from varieties specially chosen for their high levels of rose oil. With the reputed aphrodisiac qualities of rose water and gentle astringent action, means that it will always be more than a natural toner, cleanser and skin conditioner!

Its distinctive damask fragrance, often used as a perfume ingredient holds meaning across cultures and is evocative to almost every person.

Rose water contains over 400 different compounds, making it impossible to replicate. These include, Vitamin C, terpenes, glycocides, flavonoids, quarcetin, kaempferol and anthocyanins.

About Organic Witch Hazel

While everyone is familiar with the  rose, some might be surprized, that witch hazel water is the steam distillate  of the leaves bark and twigs of a shrub or small tree which grows in North America. Witch Hazel is high in tannins, quercetin, kaemferol and eugenol and gallate.

Although witch hazel is used by North American Indians for inflamed skin, itchy skin and to fade  bruises and blemishes. It is known for its astringent and anti-bacterial properties. By appreciating how these ingredients are used on their own, it is possible to formulate a combination which is perfect for your skin type and method of use.

Using Rose Water on its own

Soak a piece of cloth with rose water and gently wipe over the face neck and hands to cleanse and tone the skin. Alternatively splash rose water on with the hands, or use a spray mister and allow the rose water to dry on the skin naturally. Rose water can be used to good effect as a cleanser and toner between washing with clay and applying  argan oil.

Rose water has cooling properties and can be used as a cooling and freshening mist on the body or to cool skin with sunburn or nappy rash.

Rose water can also be mixed with Rhassoul clay for extra special face masks, skin cleansing and hair washing.

Rose water can also be used as a room spray or be sprayed onto carpets to create  a natural summer fragrance.

Spray on the hair

Rose water is excellent for reconditioning dry lips. Spray some rose water on the lips and rub with the finger until it has evaporated, rub slightly on the inside of the lips also to remove all staining from food and drink. Once the rosewater has completely evaporated, the lips will be smooth and comfortable. Now apply argan lip balm for the smoothest most comfortable results. I use rose water on my lips twice as day and it is much easier to keep them moisturized now.

Ethics

We would like to offer English rose water (as we have in the past). Unfortunately the harvest and quality has been poor due to the poor summers. Currently our rose water comes from France, but we are pleased that our French  rose water is certified organic. We hope for better weather next year and we will carry on trying samples of English rose water, to see if we can switch back again.

Rose water is a traditional product, popular in Britain since the Medieval Period and it is used in many historical recipes. Witch Hazel has been produced commercially since the middle of the nineteenth century when it rose rapidly to popularity.

Available in spray mister, capped and refill bottles – Reusable or easy to recycle glass packaging.

    You’re out of stock! Must be good – i’m looking for the 50ml with cap, would you be able to notify me when its stocked? Really interested to see if it works on my dark circles and eyes!

  5. :

    I do have some, but I have some batches in for safety testing at the moment and I will need to wait another week or too until we get the results back before I sell them again. In case you don’t know the new EU regs have imposed the condition that floral waters must be anti-microbial. It means that many providers are now putting in artificial preservative – something, I flatly refuse to do. I have been doing some historical research and I can use some natural substances to help the rose water to have enhanced anti-microbial powers. I find it quite a strange condition, because, consumers don’t expect floral water to be anti-microbial – it is not soap after all! The good thing is that rose water will have a longer shelf life and the two natural substances I am adding will actually enhance the action of the rose water – It will have some anti-microbial effect, it will reduce the appearance of broken capillaries more to reduce excessive reddness and on my own tests, it has reduced the pore size further than rose water alone. So far, my recipe has passed the preliminary tests and now we will wait for the detailed results.

    Sounds exactly what i’m looking for, a natural beauty product! I shall wait a week or two, thanks so much.

  7. 5 out of 5

    :

    I’ve been using your rose water product for over 4 months now and was really pleased with the product. Devastated to know that you cannot sell it anymore without altering the formulation/ recipe!

    I do not understand the need for floral water to be anit-microbial – these recipes have been there for ages and used by several generations with no side effect/s.

    These EU regulations are getting stringent to a point that it is actually creating a negative effect on consumers.

    Thank R,

    I agree with you, that the regulations do impact consumers. Also for business, it now takes a long time to introduce new products, even if they are natural resources which have been used safely for thousands of years. The archaeologist in me feels perturbed at how traditional knowledge is disregarded as ‘mere anecdote’. I think that it is as valid as scientific experimentation.

    When I was a kid my mum used to buy big bottles of untainted rosewater in brown bottles from Boots. I do not remember if ever going ‘off’ and I loved the smell. For many years now I have been looking for unadulterated rosewater and have even considered making my own. I wish the EU wouldn’t insist on putting its beak in everything. Interesting to know if any other countries are getting around this ruling.

  10. 5 out of 5

    (verified owner):

    This rosewater is the best and most natural you can find. We use it a lot and love it. It smells beautiful too and works wonders on my lips and as a general cleanser and toner. I couldn’t understand how anyone would give this product any less than 5 stars, but on closer inspection it seems lower star ratings were not based on the quality of the product but at annoyances with the EU rules or rating without using the product yet.
