This Rose Moisturizing Mist makes such an amazing light moisturizer – you can spray it onto your face, all over your body and even your hair. You’ll love that this recipe is simple to make and yet delivers big on skin-loving nourishment!i
Rosewater: I used to think that the scent of rose was old-fashioned. But that’s not it at all. Its essence is like being from another time, but its aroma is sweet, fresh and springlike. Rose water itself boasts great benefits – It calms the skin, reducing inflammation and it maintains a healthy pH. It’s also mildly astringent, so it makes for a great skin toner, keeping your pores clean and clear.
Oil: There are so many types of oils that you can use for the skin and hair. When oil is cold-pressed, it means that it was expelled without the use of heat or chemicals and therefore retains all of its natural properties. Using oil as a moisturizer is smart because not only does it leave your skin feeling soft, but it builds and hydrates your skin at a cellular level. Oil contains omega fatty acids, which help to build strong cellular membranes something that the skin needs in order to retain its moisture and integrity. You can also include glycerin to help your skin attract moisture from the air and stay hydrated.
These are just a few of the oils that you can use (pick one, or a blend)
For all skin types: olive, almond, argan
For dry skin: macadamia
For oily skin: jojoba
For mature skin: rosehip seed
The fragrance always stays in the hand that gives the rose.

Rose Moisturizing Mist Recipe
1/2 cup rose water
2-3 tablespoons oil of your choice and/or glycerin (I used jojoba oil in mine – it closely resembles our own skin's sebum (skin's natural oils), and soaks in very quickly making it a hydrating, yet very light moisturizer.)
mix all of the ingredients together in a spray bottle
tip: add more or less oil depending on how light or rich you want your mist to be
