Rose hips are the fruits that are produced after wild roses pollinate. Rose hips are generally vivid red in color and have a delightful, sweet flavor when incorporated into teas, fruit jams and culinary dishes.
Our Organic Rose Hip Hydrosol is expertly steam distilled from the fruits of certified organic Rosa canina. It is then carefully bottled and stored to ensure the purity and freshness of this fragrant, premium quality hydrosol.
This beautiful hydrosol possesses a wonderfully sweet, light, fruity aroma. Some may detect a delicate floral hint to its aroma. It is highly versatile and can be used for a variety of applications on its own or as an ingredient in a wide range of formulations.
Rose hips are a natural source of Vitamin C. As Vitamin C is water soluble, it is possible that Vitamin C may be present within our Organic Rose Hip Hydrosol.
Organic Rose Hip Hydrosol is cleansing, uplifting, refreshing, and rejuvenating. It is well suited for inclusion in facial toners, body sprays, natural fragrances and other water-based personal care, aromatherapy, holistic wellbeing and home fragrancing products.

We ship our hydrosols in plastic to avoid breakage, but we recommend transferring to glass bottles for long term storage. Like essential oils, hydrosols should be stored in a cool dry place. Refrigeration is ideal. The shelf life of hydrosols is up to 2 years when they are stored properly. Our Organic Rose Hip Hydrosol does not contain any preservatives.
*Shelf life begins on the date of manufacture and is defined as the average reasonable shelf life of an ingredient
when it is stored and handled properly.
