Reported Properties, Uses and Applications

Suzanne Catty reports that Rose Hydrosol is mildly astringent and acts as a humectant (attracts moisture) thus being helpful for many skin types including dry, fragile, sensitive and aging skin. Catty recommends Rose Hydrosol for those with environmental or chemical sensitivities. Emotionally and spiritually, Catty mentions that Rose Hydrosol "promotes balance, aids emotional processing, and supports you in decision making and the completion of projects." [Suzanne Catty, Hydrosols: The Next Aromatherapy (Rochester, VT: Healing Arts Press, 2001), 123.]

Len and Shirley Price report that the Rose Hydrosol that they analyzed consists of 32-66% alcohols, 8-9% esters and 5-6% aldehydes (these ranges do not include the water present in the hydrosol) and possesses the following properties: "antifungal, anti-infectious, anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, antiviral, bactericidal, balancing, calming, cicatrizant, circulatory (hypotensor), decongestant, febrifuge, stimulating, uplifting." [Len Price and Shirley Price, Understanding Hydrolats: The Specific Hydrosols for Aromatherapy: A Guide for Health Professionals (London: Churchill Livingstone, 2004), 135.]

Jeanne Rose adds that Rose Hydrosol acts as an aphrodisiac and eases nervousness and mental strain. [Jeanne Rose, 375 Essential Oils and Hydrosols (Berkeley, CA: Frog, Ltd, 1999), 171.]
