Beautifying properties of Japanese rose
Japanese rose, a popular flower for locals as it is designated as a representative of Hokkaido’s flower. This bright red and pink flower blooms twice in a year – early summer and autumn. The fragrance of this flower is also said to be superior to damask rose.Roses have many benefits, like moisturizing the body and relax the mind. Many people are starting to draw their attention to the relaxing effects of the scents of flowers (such as nerol, a rose scent used in perfumery), and the antioxidant effect (rose polyphenol) and vitamin C in petals.
The petals collected are taken to our workshop that once used to be an elementary school and has been renovated into many shops including a cafe. We delicately wash the petals and put them into a glass steamer. The petals are slowly distilled until the extracted water smells of Japanese Rose. This distilled Japanese Rose water is quite rare and hard to get ones hands on. As a souvenir, we will hand you the extract in a shaded bottle that protects against the light.
