Rose hydrosol is obtained from steam distillation of fresh/dried rose petals (botanical name: Rosa damascena) The distillation process is also used to extract the essential oil. But normally, a lot of rose petals are required to get the pure essential oil many distillers, especially local ones, extract rose hydrosol alone without the essential oil.
Fresh roses give the most gorgeous scented rose hydrosol. However, since the flower petals should be fresh and carefully picked without damaging them, it is much easier to use dried rose petals instead. If you can purchase rose hydrosol distilled from fresh rose petals from a distiller, then you’re lucky because it is very healthy for your skin.
