Roses are one of the most ancient flowers. Their beauty draws us, and calms us, and inhaling its beauty and aroma is the calm that soothes our souls.
Our Beauty Farm's (The Simple Farm) exquisite, organically grown damask garden roses - cultivated, loved, nurtured, and at the right moment - in their season of fragrant bloom - will be gathered, taken to the farm's flower distillery, known as The Sanctuary, where the culmination of our slow beauty process begins - to create our signature small-batch Vintage Rose Hydrosol.
While our damask rose garden grows, we will fill our bottles with Rose Hydrosol sourced from a beautiful organic farm in the PNW. Each bottle of Rose Hydrosol is in a beautiful hand-painted 100 ML violet bottle.
Subscribe to our Farm & Beauty Newsletter and request to be on our list for this first offering of ROSE Hydrosol and the first offering of our beauty farm’s Vintage Rose Hydrosol.
TWO MAIN BENEFITS - SKIN & EMOTION
Both the heart/soul and the skin benefit from our Vintage Rose Hydrosol. First, the skin benefits because of the really good anti-inflammatory properties of the rose. These properties make it a good choice when you have inflamed skin.
Rose is cooling, so it reduces inflammation and cools the skin down. If you have redness in your skin such as sunburn, acne, eczema or psoriasis patches - mist Vintage Rose Hydrosol. Vintage Rose Hydrosol, like many other plants we grow, has anti-bacterial properties that help fight skin infections - like acne.
Rose Hydrosol is soothing for hot flashes - place your bottle in the refrigerator and when having a hot flash, spray a little bit on the back of your neck.
ROSE HYDROSOL TO CALM EMOTIONS
Rose also has wonderful emotional calming properties. If you're having an intense emotion flare up - mist your face - breathe in the rose to promote a sense of calm. Use Rose Hydrosol if you're going through a "down" time - immersing in rose - in the garden, a bouquet, and your rose hydrosol - will have an uplifting experience.
HOW WE CREATE
Vintage Rose Hydrosol will be created with our farm's Alembic Copper Still. Hydrosol is produced with the rose petals and the whole head of the rose is distilled.
Our method is called hydro-distillation. The rose blossoms are added to water in the still and they are brought to the designated temptation to produce the steam that infuses the rose mass and then the steam that's produced is captured, condensed, and collected where the water and oil are produced are separated.
ROSE HYDROSOL and ROSE & HIBISCUS TRANSFORMING MASK
For a delightful at-home spa treatment - use about 1 teaspoon of Vintage Rose Hydrosol in your Rose & Hibiscus Transforming Mask. This is exceptionally good for mature skin.
