Latin Name: Pelargonium graveolens
Status: leaves ~ USA N. California organic
Description: Rose Geranium hydrosol, like the essential oil, is balancing and harmonizing to the skin and emotions for all ages. It is indicated for sensitive, acneic, oily, dry and mature skin. It can be used in almost any cosmetic application: toners, compresses, masks, and moisturizers. Catty suggests using it with honey as a treatment for wind damaged and overly dry skin after a clay mask. It is anti-inflammatory and can be used for sunburn, rashes, or just about any skin irritation. It makes an excellent first aid hydrosol.
Hydrosols should not be stored in the refrigerator. They like a cool, stable environment and temperature fluctuations disturb them. If you do refrigerate yours, or if it is exposed to extreme temperatures, bring your hydrosol to room temperature gradually and gently.
*130 ml size is packaged in a spray bottle
I use this hydrosol as a facial toner before moisturizer or as a face mist just because I love the scent.
