I should first of all start by explaining what hydrosols are... Hydrosols are flower waters and are created during the distilling process of plant materials (the process of extracting essential oils). Basically they are like an essential oil, just not quite as concentrated. I'm choosing to focus on Rose Hydrosol today, but there are many other types of hydrosols out there. Rose Hydrosol is simply just Rose Water (hydrosol is just a fancy name). This product has ton a of uses! It is used in Aromatherapy, Cooking, Skin Care, and many other beauty applications.
Rose water has been used for centuries, and is one of the oldest beauty secrets there is. Its use dates back to ancient Egypt... so if it has been used for that long...who am I to argue? The other great thing about this is the Aromatic benefits! The use of Rose can be used to help reduce stress and heart disease, it can be used as an antidepressant and can help balance hormones in women.
Once again, Rose Hydrosol isn't the only hydrosol available (its just the one I currently have). You can use other products for your skin, depending on your needs. Here are a couple of examples:
Normal/Sensitive Skin: Try using Rosewater or Sandalwood
Oily Skin: Witch Hazel, Juniper or Lemongrass should help
The great thing about this is its inexpensive! I paid $10.00 US for 16 oz of this product. If you think of it in relation to use, you're looking at spending hardly anything. I figure you can get 20 uses per oz that's 330 uses per 16 oz bottle, which ends up being 3 cents per application. I think I could live with that! (unless for some strange reason I can't do math, and I'm way out to lunch on this!)
