8 Benefits of Rose Water for Your Skin and Sanity

filed in:

 

With stress from the pandemic lingering in our thoughts day in and day out, there is a lot of worry and confusion going around all across the globe. This lowers our vibrations and can make us more prone to sickness. Although so much is out of our control, I like to focus on simple rituals I can do every day to feel calm and centered. One thing that raises my vibration, helps my skin and resets my mood is rose water. It’s the little things that bring light into the dark and unknown moments.

Organic Bulgarian Rose Water is the star ingredient in my Aura Cleansing Mist. From skincare to cuisine, rose water has been around for centuries. In skin care rose water acts as a natural alternative to cleansers, toners, and perfumes. In oral health, rose water can be used as a natural mouthwash alternative due to its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory abilities.  It actually works to cleanse the mouth. 

In cuisine, rose water can be used mixed in teas, smoothies, or you can add it to give floral notes to your favorite meals. There is very little rose water can’t do. If you’re curious what rose water is good for spiritually, it’s perfect for cleansing your aura. The roses can help you when connecting to your heart chakra. Plus, the floral smell can help you destress. 

Due to its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties – rose water is a key ingredient to improve your health, hair, and skin. 

Here are 8 Benefits of Rose Water:

  • Anti-Aging Properties 
  • Organic Rose Water imparts a healthy glow. Rose water’s potent amount of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties is one of the greatest benefits of rose water for skin. These antioxidants neutralize free radical damage, which is one of the leading causes of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.

  • Great for Prepping the Skin
  • rose water is ideal for prepping the skin for serums, moisturizers, and oils. You can also use rose water as a natural alternative to makeup setting spray. I like to use it as a refresher throughout the day to help my skin look supple and bright. 

  • Soothes Skin Irritation
  • Whether you’re dealing with sensitive skin, rosacea, acne, or other irritations – chances are rose water can ease your discomfort. A lot of skincare products are toxic and full of chemicals that can make sensitive skin feel worse. rose water has anti-inflammatory elements like vitamin A and C that help hydrate and soften the skin while reducing any redness. All this, while removing the build-up of oil and dirt. 

  • Boosts Your Mood
  • A light spray of our delicate aromatic mist helps cleanse your auric field and brings you back to center. It’s due to rose water’s mood-altering benefits. When you drink rose water, it has been shown to relieve the symptoms of depression and anxiety. In Ayurvedic medicine, rose water is used to help balance the energies associated with your emotions. Smelling rose water can send calming signals to your brain. I recommend keeping a small bottle in your purse to give you a little pick-me-up throughout the day.

  • Alleviates Headaches
  • rose water has been shown to aid in relieving headaches and migraines. You can soak a washcloth in it, warm it up, and press the washcloth to your head for 15-45 minutes. You can also just mist your face and lay down until you feel better.

  • Maintains Healthy Hair
  • The nourishing and moisturizing properties of rose water make it a great natural conditioner. It even revitalizes hair growth. Its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties can also be used to treat mild scalp inflammations and get rid of dandruff and reduce oiliness. So if you have dry, damaged hair add a few drops of rose water to your hair products. I also recommend spraying some directly on problem areas for immediate hydration and shine.

  • Hydrates the Skin
  •  Instead of splashing cold water on your face in the morning, spritz yourself with rose water. Organic rose water can boost the hydration of your skin. rose water is water-based, so when it’s applied directly to the skin, it provides healthy hydration to the skin. In addition, rose water is full of hydrosol (distilled plant water) and hydrosol helps to reduce excess oil in the skin while keeping skin hydrated.

  • Helps You Sleep Better
  • Every night at bedtime, spray a few pumps of rose water on your pillow, bed, feet, or face. The olfactory nerve, which is responsible for smell and located in your head, sends signals to the part of our brain that controls mood and emotions. You can be relaxed by certain scents, like rose. Get the beauty sleep you deserve!

    Purchasing the Right Rose Water

    Unfortunately, it is a common practice in the beauty industry for skincare brands to cut corners. They settle for low-quality, lab-prepared, or heavily-diluted versions of rose water. These can irritate your skin.
