The velvety smooth aroma of fresh cut roses with slight citrus backnote is an aromatic delight to the senses when using this rose hydrosol from fresh Rosa centifolia petals. Artisan distilled in France you can expect this centifolia rose water to provide the same beneficial properties as our veteran Rose Otto hydrosol. It is simply an aromatic preference that separates our Rose Otto, Rose Alba, and Rose Centifolia hydrosols, although there are some who tout Rose centifolia hydrosol for use with broken thread veins and postpartum healing.
A wonderful skin toner beneficial for mature and dry skin types, Rose centifolia 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
