Rose Otto Hydrolat (Hydrosol) is renowned worldwide for its incredible toning, nourishing, hydrating, soothing and regenerative effect on the skin. It also has an affinity with the heart and a balancing, uplifting effect on the emotions. The delicate, soft, feminine scent of this 100% pure hydrosol can also be enjoyed as natural perfume.
Rose Hydrosol is produced during the steam distillation of rose petals. The therapeutic properties of the rose have been treasured for centuries by many different cultures, and the use of rose water can be traced as far back as 1200BC where it was produced and sold in the ancient greek city of Pilos. Cleopatra was a huge fan of rosewater's beautifying and healing properties, and used it regularly for bathing, fragrancing and cosmetic purposes.
Rose Otto Hydrolat is suitable for all skin types but is especially good for dry, irritated and ageing skin. Its antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, soothing, healing properties can be beneficial for various skin problems including acne, eczema, sunburn, insect bites and other allergic skin conditions.
Its cleansing properties are useful for lifting impurities from the skin and it makes an excellent toner to use within your natural skin care regime, to promote a softer, healthier, more radiant complexion. It has a nourishing, balancing regenerative effect on the skin and can be beneficial in reducing redness/ blotchiness and areas of inflammation including 'puffy eyes'. It is also said to stimulate blood circulation to help reduce thread veins and broken capillaries.
This therapeutic hydrosol can be used daily for toning the skin and as a hydrating facial spritz for hot summer days. It can also be used as a natural hair conditioner to soothe the scalp, treat dandruff and to boost the strength, flexibility and vitality of the hair.

Preserving / storage
This Hydrolat is a 100% natural skincare ingedient that is free of alcohol,colours and preservatives. All of our Hydrolats are pasteurised during the bottling process which results in a completely 'sterile / bacteria free' product untill the point of opening. After opening, with correct storage, your Hydrolat will have approximately a 3 month shelf life.
If you are going to use this product directly on the skin we recommend that you complete one of the following options to reduce contamination and to prolong the shelf-life of your product:-
- For a natural approach - use a Steripen (a handheld UV water purifier) before every use. This will keep your Hydrolat bacteria free without the use of chemicals. Steripens are widely used for travel, outdoor recreation and family health and can be purchased online.
- Add a natural preservative - add 0.1% Citric Acid with 0.5% Sodium Benzoate and Potassium Sorbate to your Hydrolat when you first receive it. This will preserve your Hydrolat for 18 months.
- Use a simple preservative system - add 20% (20ml in 100ml) alcohol to give your Hydrolat a 12 month shelf life.
Hydrolats should be kept in a cool, dark place at all times. Refrigeration is recommended when possible.
Women adore the aroma so it makes a beautiful day time body splash. Blend with 50% grain alcohol (vodka) and add 1% Rose Absolute essential oil (or Geranium essential oil if you do not have Rose in your collection) for a natural body spray.
