Early rising, cold water and fresh air was thought to make a good temperament in a lady. We think it was also catching a hint of flowers through the use of floral water and being able to be finally released from ones corset…
When I located this recipe full of herbs and flowers I knew it was a must make. This herb and floral water is found in beauty treasuries dating back to 1778. Earlier versions (sans gum of benjamin and storax) can be found going back to 1705 used as a facial wash and morning cordial (two for one!). A base of white wine serves as the main solution with flowers and herbs solar infused. The rosemary, pennyroyal, rose petals, lavender, chamomile and thyme are all grown organically here on our farm.
The Ladies Water is then slowly heated to distill the alcohol and topped with gum of benjamin, cloves and storax balsam. The results are lightly scented and surprising - it is a mixture of leather undertones with lemon, clove and cinnamon high notes.
How to use: After cleansing, spray liberally onto face and let air dry (this is what I have found to work best but experiment away!). Sinks in quickly leaving a silky refreshing feeling. Can be topped off with moisturizer if you wish or left on its own… definitely a make again for us. 2.5 ounce bottle, long lasting, a couple sprays will cover entire face

From our customers:
This Ladies Water has the most unique scent! I can't really describe it, but notes of spiced cookies, grapes, and basalmic vinegar! (All in a good way) I love the cloves on the bottom! It will be the perfect spray to use before applying makeup! Thank you so much for yet another amazing product!
Brisk and refreshing, with a lovely spicy aroma heavy on the clove (mine even has a clove settled on the bottom). The scent lingers pleasantly and is best followed by your moisturizer of choice to calm the skin. Lovely product and great as an astringent and toner!
The scent is unusual & mystical!!!!! I love it!!! Refreshing & feels good!!
