Rosewater Virgin's Milk

Rosewater Virgin's Milk


Called "milk" for the milky appearance when Gum of Benjamin is added, Virgin's Milk was widely found at every woman's vanity used as a daily elixir for skin. It was advertised as "giving one an ivory complexion and softens all faces smooth". The scent is a warm, lovely vanilla. Safe for those with exzema and psoriasis. 2 oz bottle

This is an exact recipe from 1833 handmade with our own farm grown rose petals. I am pleasantly surprised by how little ingredients there are yet how soft it leaves skin... no wonder it was widely popular. Rosewater is such a wonder for skin and with the Balm of Gilead infused into rosewater - it leaves skin silky and clean. Some customers have told us they use this alone without moisturizer. 

The original recipe calls for Balm of Gilead, a wonderful, nourishing bud from Poplar trees whose sap is both protecting and healing. We gather it here in the late winter for use in our balms and salves. Instead of using an oil, which can sometimes contain fillers if commercially purchased, we have instead infused the buds into the milk giving you the utmost benefit possible. 

No yucky stuff! We are sulfate, palm oil, propylene glycol and petroleum byproducts free. This product does not contain a preservative. Please use within 6 months of opening.


From our customers:

Love using this as a toner after I’ve done my double cleanse, so nice to have a natural product based off an authentic recipe.


Lovely! Very nice scent. Makes my skin sooooo soft. And takes black eyeliner off with one pass. Seriously impressed. Very timely shipping.


I use this as a cleanser in the mornings. I rub it on with a cotton ball and leave on skin. It cleans gently without stripping the skin.


What a wonderful find! I love the fact that this version of Virgin's Milk contains the buds of the poplar infused in it. It goes on smoothly with a small esthetic wipe and leaves my skin soothed, refreshed and hydrated without greasiness. I love to use it after cleansing with the Rosewater cold cream or Rose Glycerine (which I use as a cold cream too). My skin is then ready for moisturizer and/or sunscreen.
