Hydrosol is the aromatic water that is produced during the distilling process. It has similar therapeutic properties to the essential oils, but is far less concentrated. These aromatic products possess a similar scent to their oil counterpart and the plant matter used in the distillation process imparts the hydrosol with the water-soluble aromatic and therapeutic properties of the plant.
With a strong floral and sweet fragrance, rose is a favourite in the fragrance industry and favoured in skin care with its soothing and hydrating properties. The high cost of Rose Otto Oil makes Rose Otto Hydrosol a viable alternative.
Rose Otto Oil is extracted via gentle steam distialltion, with this prized Hydrosol being a product of this process.
As well as being a favourite in the fragrance industry, Rose Otto is perfect in skin care as it is hydrating and soothing whilst bringing a gentle toning action that helps to strengthen the collagen-elastin network.
Its sweet and floral aroma makes it uplifting and stimulating.
Principal Constituents: Citronellol, geraniol, stearopten, nerol, neral, linalool, phenylethyl alcohol, trans-farnesol, trans-b-damascenone, cis-rose oxide.
Hydrosols are a gentler product than the essential oil and can often be used directly on the skin without further dilution and can be used in place of water in creating natural fragrances, lotions, creams, facial toners and other skin care products.
Rose Otto is well known for its skin benefits, being soothing and especially nourishing for dry skin.
