Pure rose water is distilled from rose petals that were grown without chemicals and pesticides and collected during spring months from Mediterranean roses in North Tunisia. This water is made by a cooperative of women who live in small villages and have been perfecting the art of flower water distillation for generations.
Typical process includes picking fresh petals from rose flowers after sun has evaporated dew from them and petals are naturally dry. Stems and leaves of a rose plant are not used. Once petals are collected, they are thoroughly washed to remove any dirt particles and any bugs.
Rose petals are then placed in a large pot of distilled water just enough to cover petals to preserve high concentration of rose water. Water will steam until rose oil residue forms on the surface.
Then fresh and fragrant rose water is strained and collected for storage and is ready for your use.
Fun fact - flower waters cannot be organic certified as they contain water. However, our water has the most superb quality you can imagine and will last forever even if you forget about it for a couple of years and leave it on your shelf (but don't) :)
