Roses are known for their beauty and distinct scent.  In addition to their pleasing aesthetic, roses provide some considerable health and anti-aging benefits.  Rose water is filled with antioxidants and various vitamins, therefore, it can help prevent the signs of aging and nourish the skin.  Rose water also has natural antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.

If you have ever looked into rose essential oil, it is very expensive.  Since many of us don’t have hundreds of dollars to spend on rose oil, an alternative that has been used for centuries is rose water.  Rose water is a byproduct from rose essential oil making.  When the roses are distilled, it’s the water that is left behind.  It’s possible to make your own,  but it is fairly easy to find for sale.

Rose as an herb is very cooling, soothing, anti-inflammatory, and astringent…the perfect recipe for those suffering from acne. Apply it to blemished areas for a calming effect. The best method is to spray it on directly.
