ROSE GERANIUM HYDROSOL- 100% NATURAL FLORAL WATER!
Hydrosol Name: Rose Geranium
Botanical Name: Pelargonium graveolens
Hydrosols are different than essential oils. A hydrosol (floral water) is the by-product of the essential oils distillation process. When essential oils are extracted from the plant materials, the “leftover” water from the steaming process is collected and put to use.
Once thought of as waste, hydrosols contain all the therapeutic properties of essential oils, just at a lower concentration. Essential oils can become too strong and overly potent without proper dilution, but hydrosols are safe and ready to use. They can be sprayed into the air, applied directly to the skin, and used in the home.
Floral water, aromatic water, hydrolats and hydroflorates are all terms used to describe hydrosols.
Rose Geranium Hydrosol is a favorite among maturing women due to its variety of skin benefits. It’s used in lotions to decrease the visibility of cellulite and varicose veins, and can be applied to the face as a gentle toner that improves signs of aging. It is also a popular choice for teenagers because it’s great for combination or acne prone skin. It can be used to sooth eczema, sunburns, bruises and irritated skin. It can be used in a hot compress to ease menstrual cramps, and it’s aroma will balance hormone related mood swings. As a room spray, it works to calm an overactive mind and is great for hyperactive children.
