Some say Cistus hydrosol lacks a pleasing aroma.   It smells much like Cistus (Rock Rose) essential oil, only lighter.  Warm, sweet, and resinous; we find it strikingly pleasant. We offer two types of Cistus hydrosol at Lotus Garden Botanicals, this one that is organic and another that's wildcrafted from Portugal.  If unsure which you will favor we suggesting trying one of each in our 1 oz size first. 

Suzanne Catty notes Cistus Hydrosol as astringent, styptic and cicatrizant, wonderful for healing scars and wounds.  Price and Price regard Cistus hydrosol as an antiseptic, antiviral and sedative for inducing deep relaxation.  Many find this hydrosol beneficial for anti-aging, anti-wrinkles, plumping skin cells, toning and tightening skin and to refine pores.   

Beneficial Uses of Cistus (Rock Rose) Hydrosol:  
  • Antiviral

  • Aid for healing scars and wounds

The shelf life of hydrosols is generally up to 2 years or longer when properly stored in the refrigerator. Our Organic Cistus Hydrosol does not contain any preservatives.
