Sanft duftendes Rosenhydrolat

Gently scented rose hydrolate

Rose petals contain essential oils like geraniol, citronellol, and nerol. They also contain vitamins A, C and P (flavonoids) as well as lipids, waxes and resins. The essential oils and tanning agents in the rose have an anti-inflammatory, nerve-strengthening and astringent effect on minor skin injuries or inflammation of the mucous membranes.

It is also advisable to apply a light rose hydrosol compress to insect bites. Itching and swelling go down quickly. Work just as quickly and easily rose compresses for swollen and irritated eyes: simply apply a cotton pad with rose hydrolate as a soothing compress and let your eyes relax for 10 minutes.
