Let IZIL make you discover Rose water through its Moroccan heritage.
Near the famous city of Ouarzazate in the south of Morocco, a small village arises called the “Kelaat Meggouna”. Surrounded by a desert of sand, who would suspect that such peaceful refuge grows acres upon acres of Damascus roses.
At harvest time, each year, the city hosts a Rose Festival to celebrate this beautiful flower.
Women still gather in cooperatives to extract the very essence of this rose and distil it traditionally, to produce pure rose water.Traditions helping, this pure Moroccan produce is still being made the same way and even exported.
When invited to a Moroccan wedding you might see an unusual object being passed over the tables. People will be happily spilling rose water from it on themselves and washing their faces and hands with it. This act takes all its meaning in the fact that pure rose water is directly linked to happiness and joy.
Rose water as you would imagine is highly valued in the Moroccan culture and is used in different skin preparations especially during the Moroccan bath or Hammam. It is added for example to the clay or Ghassoul to give the experience a better fragrant experience. However, and apart from its beautiful scent, rose water is a must-have in every woman’s cosmetic case.
Women use it generally as a natural toner for the face or to wipe out any remaining trace of makeup. It can be directly sprayed on the face after cleaning as it is well known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. You can also mix equal proportions of rose water and pure Argan oil to create your own natural makeup remover. The oil content of this natural cleaning solution will remove any trace of makeup even the waterproof one. Rose water alone can beat any morning eyes puffiness. Add a generous amount of rose water to a cotton pad and put it on your eyes for about 10 to 15 min and notice the difference.
If you are taking a shower, you can also add few drops of rose water after your final rinse from head to toe to give your body a nice fragrant smell. Or you can add few drops in your bath to enjoy a relaxing moment. And if you shaved your legs after that bath, you can also use a cotton with rose water on them to avoid the razor harsh effects on the skin.
Last but not least and this is one of our secret uses of rose water. You can use a small quantity of rose water added to normal drinking water and spray it over bed sheets. Enjoy then a nice fragrant and peaceful night!
