Organic Cistus Hydrosol, also known as Rock Rose Hydrosol or Labdanum Hydrosol, isn't the most aromatically pleasant hydrosol for some, but it's applications in skin care are significant and make up for its distinctive herbaceous aroma. We certainly don't want to discourage you from experimenting with the hydrosol as some do find the aroma pleasant.
Cistus Hydrosol is highly astringent. Suzanne Catty suggests and recommends the use of Cistus Hydrosol to help minimize the appearance of wrinkles and to help protect maturing skin. It may also be effective in helping to prevent the appearance of stretch marks.

We ship our hydrosols in plastic to avoid breakage, but hydrosols should be transferred to glass as soon as possible. Like essential oils, hydrosols should be stored in a cool dry place. The shelf life of hydrosols is up to 2 years when they are stored properly. Our Cistus Hydrosol does not contain any preservatives. Hydrosols can be stored in the refrigerator.
