Q: When is the right time to use a product like this and how would you integrate it into your routine?
The first record of the production and sale of “Acqua di Rose” with medicinal properties dates back to 1381. The decades of the black plague were particularly harsh for the people afflicted by it; this was for this reason the Dominican friars began distilling Rose Water. At that time this water was used both to sanitize rooms and for personal care as a mild medicine, diluted with wine or taken as pills.
Rose aroma lends itself to calm and soothe not only the skin, but mood as well. Roses possess gentle refining and anti-microbial benefits for the skin, as well as being a powerful antioxidant to protect the skin from oxidative stress.
