We carry Australian Rose essential oil and couldn’t see not having the
beautiful Fruity Rose companion, Australian Rose Hydrosol. The essential oil is
thought to inhibit pathological fungi Candida and Aspergillus. The hydrosol is
ideal to use in treatment because it carries some of the chemical constituents
of the oil but on a micro dose level. I call hydrosols the Homeopathy of
essential oils, which my aromatic friends seem to think is funny as all get out
and because I never made it as a singer, I’ll take my audience any way I can,
kooky aromatherapists and all.
Australian Rose is a new species grown directly on our distilling partner’s
plantation and so is still being studied for potential therapeutic properties.
Because of the Geraniol chemotype or CT, I would characterize it as a fresh
Rose Geranium with some fruitiness and no green back note. It’s almost
delicious. The hydrosol is a very clean, fresh scent and best appreciated in
the heat of summer when a light scent is prefered. In our City of Trees, where
most summer days hit the 100 F mark, Australian Rose Hydrosol conquers red skin
and the sheer stickiness of summer.
Suggested uses: Mist on skin to reduce redness and hydrate. Adds a fresh
floralness on linen. Several mists to a warm sitz bath can help treat candida.
Packaged in 3.3oz/100 ml tamper proof glass bottles.
