Rosewater is produced by traditional water distillation of the petals of the Damask Rose variety during the spring season.
The flowers are picked at dawn before the sun could alter their perfume. Petals are separated and placed in an alembic full of water, with 2 liters of water for every 1 kg of petals. The mixture is then heated at a low temperature to avoid burning the extremely fragile flowers. The steam is then collected and condensed into the water, which is bottled afterward.
Rosewater is a key ingredient of many Mediterranean desserts and pastries. It adds a very aromatic fragrance to your preparations.
Known to contain vitamins A, B, C, and E, as well as other antioxidants, you can mix it with a cup of regular water and drink once a day to keep your skin hydrated, or use it even topically to fight skin inflammations and reduce risks of infections..
