Overview

Rosa damascena flower water is a fragrant water that is leftover during the process of steam distillation of rose petals from rosa damascena – the Damask rose.

During the steam distillation of the rose petals, the essential oil floats to the surface of the water and is collected. The leftover water contains rose essential oil in minuscule amounts, and so the fragrance is very subtle. It can be re-distilled to obtain a more precious oil, or it can be used as is.

Rosewater is used to flavor sweets, cakes, and syrups and is an important ingredient in skincare. It provides the product with a fresh, rosy scent and is often used in soaps, creams, and toning waters.
