There are many different kinds of Roses and they are reflected in the hydrosols. The water is lovely and really is a perfume in itself. There are widely varying degrees of quality that are due to distillation process, raw material as well as the storage and handling of the finished product. It is mildly antiseptic and is very humectant. It is a great addition to any skin care product.

The Damask Rose is a medieval cross the Rosa gallica and a wild rose. The Damask Rose has a long history of cultivation, consumption and use in Iran, Europe, Bulgaria, Turkey and India. It is grown all over the world as an ornamental shrub. It may be called the Apothecary Rose or the Dog Rose. Why the Dog Rose...? Because the Rosa alba is a cross of damask and Rosa canina.
