Benefits of Rose Water

So, when I spritz my hair to add a little moisture to it, I use a mixture of Rose Water and Distilled Water,
I mainly use Rose Water because of the scent, but there are also some benefits to it. you go....

Rose water improves the blood circulation in the scalp. Regular use of rose water can also promote hair growth. Rose water is also a very good hair conditioner and revitalizes the hair. It can also help in reducing inflammations. It has also been found to be very effective in countering the dandruff caused due to fungal infections. It boosts the health of the hair and so reduces the hair fall and dryness of the scalp and the hair. It also makes the hair strong and flexible and so there is minimal broken hair or split ends

Facts about Rose Water:

  • Rose water is used as an important ingredient in many body creams due to its pleasant fragrance. Rose water is also a very useful toner. This is probably why Romans in the ancient days preferred to bathe in rose water. It is known that rose water helps to stimulate the nervous system.

  • Rose water also has certain antiseptic and anti bacterial properties. This is why is it useful to cure certain skin problems as well.

  • Rose water is also popular due to its distinct flavor. This is the reason why rose water is used in West Asian, South Asian and cuisines of the Middle Eastern areas.

In India, this is used as an ingredient in Gulab Jamun, which is a very popular sweet. Areas of Malaysia and Singapore use rose water as an ingredient in a sweet drink, which is known as Bandung.

Rose water is made from distilled water of the roses. The process involves the use of steam distillation. There are many ways to make rose water at home.
