Rosewater also known as rose hydrosol is a MUST product for your skincare routine. Before explaining what rosewater benefits are let me tell you in brief what a hydrosol is.
Hydrosols are known as floral water or essential water or herbal water. They are created by distilling with steam the rose petals. So in basic hydrosols are like essential oils but in far less concentration. One important thing to know when it comes to getting Cocojojo Hydrosols is that you are getting a 100% distilled product. Hydrosols are distilled once or twice a year with the fresh harvest season. We try to contract for enough material to last between distillations, but we may run out of your favorite hydrosol before the next season begins. Know that you have to stay tuned with us to get your hydrosols on time.
Now back to that wonderful rosewater hydrosol.
Rosewater is undoubtedly beauty’s magic potion, and remarkably versatile. Whether you have oily, dry or combination skin, rosewater must be added to your beauty routine. The usage of rosewater dates back to early Egypt, when Cleopatra (yes her!) used the natural product in her skincare regime. And if Cleopatra used something for her beauty for sure we should too.
Rosewater hydrosol is fragrant, and it’s sometimes used as a mild natural fragrance.
Rosewater helps in maintaining the skin’s PH balance; controlling the excess oil leading to less clogged pores and a clear skin. It has also anti-inflammatory and moisturizing properties that can help reduce irritated skin, reduce the appearance of acne and keep your skin fresh and hydrated.
Due to its antibacterial properties, it can also help with scars that acne can leave behind, making their appearance fade.
Rosewater has also antioxidant properties; meaning it helps strengthening skin cells, tightening capillaries and toning the skin. As a result fine lines and wrinkles will not be your problem anymore.
You can use rosewater before applying your makeup or after; you can spray it on your face how many times you want for a fresh radiant skin.
Rosewater is also helpful on cuts and burns; making them heal faster due to its antiseptic properties.
This wonderful water can be used for the hair too. I bet that you are familiar with frizzy hair and experienced it at least once. Well, rosewater can really help with that. It covers your hair in a layer so that it does not lose its moisture. So it is good to keep a bottle of rosewater always with you.
Bonus point: rosewater has an awesome scent that is said to be a powerful mood enhancer and make you feel more relaxed. Studies have shown that it has strong antidepressant and antianxiety properties. So next time you are feeling stressed you know what to do.
Rosewater and rose essential oil are also used very much in aromatherapy to help relieve headaches. Spray it in the room you are staying or soak a compress in rosewater and put it in your head for 45min to make the headache disappear.
There are so any other uses of rosewater but our all-time favorites are:

- Body Mist
- Clothing Mist

Hydrosols should be kept in a cool, dark place.
Rosewater Hydrosol is one simple and unbelievable addition to anyone’s beauty routine!
