2. Cold and Flu Remedy

Rose water is a traditional remedy for soothing sore throats and relieving symptoms of respiratory illness. It contains ethanolic and aqueous extracts with antitussive properties that relax muscles in the throat and chest to ease coughing. It also contains ethanolic essential oils that act as bronchodilators to expand airways and reduce congestion. Rose water vapors ease the effects of chronic inflammatory respiratory illnesses such as COPD and emphysema.
