“I have the wonderful Rockrose hydrosol and using it with care as it´s worth gold to me.
Fantastic smell, wonderful on skin, just burnt my arm badly and spraying lavender and rockrose just made it heal fast and not itch and ache.
Perfect when blending perfumes and colognes which I do and teach about a lot.”

Margit Franz, Eggenfelden, Germany

“I really like your rockrose hydrosol. As mentioned, it smells wonderful and has a pleasant and soothing effect on the skin. It’s a good complement to our high quality natural care products.”
