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. The hydrosol helps to prevent and stop bleeding. Suzanne Catty suggests and recommends the use of Cistus Hydrosol for the cleansing of wounds. She also refers to its ability to help minimize wrinkles and protect maturing skin. It may also be effective in helping to prevent stretch marks.

General Applications:

  • Facial Toner
  • Use to Replace Water in Moisturizers
  • Use in Clay Facials and Masks
  • Steams
  • Compresses
  • Wet Wipes

Visit our Hydrosols category page for a detailed introduction to hydrosols. For more in-depth information on hydrosols and their many valuable applications, we recommend the book Hydrosols: The Next Aromatherapy Book by Suzanne Catty.

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.

Comments: This is the second time I've purchased Cistus Hydrosol from FNWL. It's an excellent product. Upon arrival, the pH was within the specifications published by Suzanne Catty in Hydrosols. The aroma is clean and typical of Rock Rose/Cistus essential oil. Would buy again.

Customer Testimonial

"I just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
