Rating: THis is not a hydrosol. The product is a nice scent but is foamy . That ‘soap’ once spritzed on the face hurt my eyes. Bought 2 big bottles of it and don’t know what to do with it ...
New Directions Aromatics Response:
Hi Alae, we're sorry to hear that you weren't happy with the floral water you purchased. Please contact our Customer Service team to investigate your concern, as our floral waters do not contain any synthetics or foaming agents. In the meantime, we suggest using this product as a linen spray or room deodorizer. Have a wonderful day!
Rating: This Rose Water is absolutely amazing! I'm a novice to the essential oil world-so I'm no expert, but I do know what has worked for me...and this is one of those that has! This floral water has such a beautiful smell....so soft and natural. NOTHING like those fake, chemical smelling scents. I use this in conjunction with a few drops of peppermint oil as a facial toner. I LOVE how it makes my skin glow, and really helps in keeping acne outbreaks at bay. I have really sensitive skin, but this rose water doesn't irritate me at all (I use it at least twice a day..sometimes more). I am back to purchase more and will experiment with mixing it with lavender floral water and/or oil!

Rating: The smell is different from MRH. maybe this is a different type of rose? And the color is a little yellowish, not clear trasnparent. Anyway, it is much cheaper, and i think ND provides good quality stuff. will buy again.

By:Vann-Ly, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Rose hydrosol is my favorite water phase ingredient in my handcrafted lotions. It blends well with other floral EOs. Also, great as a facial toner. The scent lifts my spirits instantly.
By:Stacey, Paris, Illinois Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 20-Nov-2011
Rating: Smells beautifully like a real rose, however for some reason it irritates my skin a lot . Few minutes after using it ,my face becomes very inflamed ,blotchy ,red and itchy . Next time I will try to dilute rose essential oil ,maybe this would work for me. I would appreciate any suggestion and advice since I'm new at this .
Rating: I love this rose floral water. I used a couple of tablespoons of it to mix in with my French Green clay... also bought here from NDA - and put it on my face as an acne clay mask. It smells just like roses. Thank you, NDA

By:Mihaela, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Absolutely love this Floral Water.
I use it in almost all my cosmetic recipes, but my favorite is adding it to my facial cream with beeswax and other special ingredients
By:Beatriz, Kingston, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: A very rosy scent! A little too pungent for me alone but it works perfectly mixed with a milder one. I like to mix mine with clary sage as that one is a bit too earthy for my tastes. Thank you for an affordable way to experiment with all your lovely products!
By:Tanya, Lacey, Washington Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 11-Jan-2012
Rating: Glorious! This smells so good, i could't stop opening the bottle to take a sniff. Made a quick toner just to smell it some more and the scent lingered all night. My first floral water was the Neroli, and I really didn't like it, so I stayed away from floral waters all together. Too bad really because i really missed out on this wonderful rose scent. It's slightly sweet, warm, like standing outside of my grandmothers house in summer when her roses were all in bloom. Will be buying this one often.
By:Laura, Vancouver, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Beautiful smell! I add a few drops of lavender E.O. and use it as a calming facial spritz!
By:Erica, Maple, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This smells so good, I don't want to sell it. I want to keep it all to myself and just smell it over and over again hahaha. I just put some in a spray bottle and sprayed it around the house and on the furniture. Our house smells so fresh and beautiful I feel like I'm in a flower garden.
By:Abbie, Nova Scotia, Nova Scotia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Gorgeous scent! Use in face masks and lotions in place of water. Easy breezy Beautiful! Love these floral waters!
By:Evelyn, North Olmsted, Ohio Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 18-Aug-2008
Rating: Wonderfull! Use it as a facial spray, esp in the summer to cool down use it as a body spray. Pure luxury. Wonderful for the face, used neat as a toner or spray, in in creams. Makes the face glow. Soft scent.
By:Kristina, Hamilton, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I sprayed this on my face & my it irritated certain parts of my face. I do not have any rare skin conditions. I had to rinse my face off & used some aloe vera gel with a little tea trea essential oil & it calmed my face down. I think the cust. serv. rep. said that it's concentrated, but after that experience I will not repurchase. I could not return & did not want to waste it, so I used the remains in my foot bath.

Rating: I'm so excited to be able to work with true rose! So much nicer than any synthetic rose! The scent of this water is very true rose. And what a useful floral water! My teenager blends this with a little witch hazel and spreads it on her face any time acne starts creeping up. Consistently, the morning after she does this treatment, her face is clearing up. I wish my mother had known about this when I was a teenager!
By:Cynthia, Mount Carroll, Illinois Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 08-Sep-2010
Rating: I bought this product a few months ago and fell in love with it, so did all the family members who I showed it to. Then when I re-ordered, I was blown away to find out that it was even more intoxicating than the second batch. Perhaps it is a different supplier? Or a different rose variety? The color is slightly more yellowish, whereas the first batch was clear, but oh my gosh this stuff is amazing. The scent is so intricate and is perfect just by itself as a toner. I HIGHLY recommend this product!

Rating: Absolutely incredible! Great price, great packaging, great personal assistance! I want to personally thank Mildred for shipping my order and taking great care of everything. I was pleasantly surprised by my first order on this product. The bottle comes in a tinted brown color (plastic) and the content is scented just right. (Faintly, not too overbearing.) Thanks again, you guys rock!
Rating: I love roses!!!! This rose water smells so good that I'm scared to use it, haha! I know that makes no sense, but everytime I open the bottle I just want to preserve it! However, I have used it several times mixed with french pink clay for a mask and it really works wonderfully. It's so simple, but I think its my favorite mask. I use it once a week and my skin has never looked more radiant. Even strangers are commenting on it :)
By:Christine, North Vancouver, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Use it for toners and room sprays. Such a gorgeous natural scent. And so naturally good for your skin! A huge hit!
By:Az, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Beautiful, light scent. I've mixed it with some witch hazel and put it in a spray bottle and store it in the fridge. A quick cool spray to your face and neck is so refreshing after this heat that we've had lately. Love the scent!
By:Betsy, Brockville, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I add this Rose Water, to witch hazel, glycerin, and a bit of vodka, for a great face toner.
By:Marilyn, Newmarket, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Since I stopped using creams at night time to let my face breath and sweat out the bacteria at night, I have been using rose floral water instead. I noticed an added bonus. Not only does it help moisturize but wow!!! helped with my break out acne. I only realized this when I stopped using it (I ran out) and my acne came partially back. Thanks to the lemon tea tree essential oil, it only partially came back. I use this also with tea tree in it to clean my pours at night time and after my morning shower. It is amazing!!! Excellent as an astringent when used with a little witch hazel.
By:Lisa, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: i wasn't sure if i would like a rose scent, but i really like this one! not an old lady rose scent, very fresh and natural. stronger than i though it would be too.

By:Diane, West Hartford, Connecticut Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 06-Aug-2009

Rating: I am thrilled to find floral waters that are so much more affordable & without preservatives. I have been searching high & low for these products but the prices are sky high.
I am finding many quality items that I have been searching for & the prices are excellent in comparison to other online sites. This is very exciting to me being in the skin care business as I can pass this savings onto my customers by making a more affordable product. Thank you New Directions Aromatics. I can\'t wait to be a regular customer. Your packaging material is great too!

Rating: Smells great and makes a wonderful facial toner with no fragrance required!
By:Samantha, Vancouver, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I have never used floral waters before, but I decided to take the plunge with rose water. Even as I opened the box that contained my shipment, I could tell that I would LOVE this product. It is a light, refreshing rose aroma. I splash it on my face after I moisturize just for the scent and comb a little through my hair to smell heavenly throughout the day. I use the rose water to blend with the body butter base to make a lightly scented lotion and it is simply beautiful, truly rose-like, not cloying or overly perfume-y.
By:Holly, Glendale, Arizona Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 08-Dec-2008
Rating: I use rosewater in the bath more than anything and it not only smells wonderful, it makes my skin really soft. With a couple of drops of chamomile oil it makes sensitive skin feel incredible!
By:Samantha, Calgary, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005

I've used rose floral water of many different brands before but I think ND's rose water is the best! I use it on my face, on my hair, on my cloth and my bed - I use it anywhere, AND IT LASTS!
I know the in the future, I'll never want to buy this from anywhere else.

Will be buying more of that for sure and trying others as well.

Rating: Beautiful scent! Like being sent a dozen roses! Am using it as a toner and facial spray to set make up. And use it for spraying my brush when applying mineral foundation the damp method. Also added a few drops of the rose oil as another reviewer suggested. It has plenty of scent-but as she said; it "kicks" it up!

Rating: This rose water is wonderful!! I like to use as a toner or quick refreshing spray during the day.

Wonderfully product :-)

By:Edith, Hurricane, Utah Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 14-Jan-2007
Rating: Bought the one litre bottle. I use the floral water as a toner, and I'm very pleased that it doesn't irritate my skin at all. This product is of extremely good value. The toner I used to buy was only 1/3 of the NDA 1L bottle and it cost more. The rose scent is gorgeous. This has to be one of NDA's bestsellers.
