Rose Water is Good for You, Here’s Why

Women of all ages love roses. They are enchanted by their elegance and beauty, and of course, we want to brag to our family and friends how we received ‘just because’ flowers. Well, I’m about to rock your world (and your man’s wallet) because just as we suspected, we need more roses in our lives. Hello rose water!

Rose water is the best-kept secret. Cleopatra and Michelangelo both used rose water in their daily lives. Here are five reasons why you should too:

Rose water is great for your complexion:

It has been known to calm acne, rosacea and to reduce redness and inflammation!

Rose water gives you beautiful locks:

Rose water rinses (preferably at room temperature) are recommended for boosting shine and hair growth, plus it gives hair an irresistible smell (I can see many Herbal Essence moments pending).

Rose water is easy on the eyes:

It can be used as redness-relieving eye drops and can also be used when contacts get dry and foggy.

Smells like roses:

Rose water makes a good odor masking spray and it is harmless to spray on pets (pet deodorants actually use roses as an ingredient).

Roses and tea:

Perfect combination right? Well, you can make delicious tea with it. Add a squeeze of lemon or chamomile tea bag and prepare to relax into a flowery slumber.
