Rose water, commonly Rosa damascene or the Damask rose, is a liquid byproduct of the rose plant. The name derives from the root of the plant in Iran, although it is now heavily grown in India, Turkey, Bulgaria and other parts of Europe. Originally, for its health and beauty benefits (in addition to religious uses), the plant was used by ancient Persians.
The multitude of beneficial side effects have earned the rose the certification of a miracle food in some eyes. Because of the high vitamin, antioxidant and safe sugar properties of the plant, rose water benefits vary from skin hydration to frizzy hair calming. Rose water can also be used as a daily substitute, a safe, go-to treatment for the common cold.
