On the Mediterranean coast of Tunisia there are villages that have been perfecting the art of flower water distilling for centuries. Why are flowers are so cool and what is so great about flower waters? Some believe that flowers carry vibrations of Earth and are alive even after they are harvested. The unbelievably fragrant scent of flower waters or hydrosols can do wonders for skin, body and mood.
I spend years in search of the best flowers that make the most decadent first distillation flower waters. And after years of traveling dirt roads to most remote locations I found them - a non-profit coop of women who spend their days extracting essence from the flowers that rival most exquisite perfumes. Each batch is made in April-May when flowers are at their best and waters are so rich that you can see those precious flower oils collecting on top.
This is how Katari Rose and Geranium flower waters are made. They truly are staples in the Mediterranean beauty rituals and of course in food. Katari Rose water, or as we call it, Roseau, is used as a natural toner and light astringent. It shrink pores and lifts skin without using any other products. Roseau also serves as amazing base for your face oil to seal that moisture. And, during facials or pedicures, a spray of decadent rose water puts senses in a pleasant dream as it refreshes skin.
Katari Geranium Water or Geran is indispensable in facials and waxing. It’s best quality apart from being a great natural moisturizer, is light antiseptic. It cools flashed, red skin and helps minimize irritation caused by waxing or other procedures. And it smells heavenly.
We work with the flower water ladies and help support their ancient craft. We welcome you to sample the best flower waters out there and spread the word.
With gratitude and lots of love, Kate - Founder, Katari
