A rare treat! Rose Alba hydrosol is artisan distilled from white roses and smells exactly like fresh cut roses with a captivating deep sweet floral aroma. This white rose hydrosol has all the same skin nurturing benefits as our Rose Otto hydrosol.
Rose Alba is a hybrid of unknown parentage although some botanists agree it is possibly from hybridization of Rosa gallica and Rosa canina. Rose Alba has been cultivated since ancient times in Europe and because it is winter hardy can be found to prosper in colder regions as a garden shrub.
Rose water is world renown for its skin healing abilities and is a helpful skin toner for mature and dry skin types. Rose alba hydrosol can be used as a facial mist or by applying on the face and neck with a cotton pad. Because Rose is an excellent humectant it helps add and keep moisture in the skin. Suzanne Catty recommends blending with Cistus Hydrosol
to diminish wrinkles in mature skin.
Emotionally, Suzanne Catty states that Rose has an affinity with the heart and the emotional spheres of the mind, body and spirit. Rose is known as an aphrodisiac aroma all on its own or in blends. For a romantic and sensuous spray to mist on bed linens and pillows consider blending with our rare East Indian Sandalwood Hydrosol
