The original story of the Queen of Hungary's Water is lost in the mists of time but as a legend this magical toning water lives on. It has many modern versions and this is ours, a cornucopia of flowers, herbs, and scented plants from our garden.
It is said the original recipe written in the hand of Elizabeth of Hungary dated 1235, can still be viewed in a library in Vienna. Consisting of primarily of rosemary, alcohol and herbs to stimulate circulation, the woman who was to become the Queen of Hungary was either infirm or paralyzed and this formula restored her health and her beauty and her marriage.
A balancing toner created with a blend of herbs infused in an alcohol free witch hazel hydrosol with fragrant orange flower water.
Spray or splash on your face and neck after cleansing and before moisturizing.
