You sure can, it's fine to use a hydrosol instead of distilled water and no there isn't any harm at all, you would get the added benefit of the rose in your hydrosol. Very Happy

Thanks DM. Here's another problem it is difficult to find organic rose bud in my hometown to DIY my rose water. Rolling Eyes

you can, in fact it would most likely help balance the end product. vitamin C generally comes in more drying forms but through mixing it with a hydrating substance exp Rose Hydrosol, it will give some balance. Smile

No harm, but I would like to apply seperately.

One thing I worry is that if the water of the rose hydrosol is metal free or not. Distilled water doesn't have metal there.

This is interesting to me, since initially I was mixing my vit c with green tea, but then heard that there may be complications with that, so I stopped. I was kind of sad about this and everytime I wanted to mix vit c with something else, I hesitated.

So are hydrosols in general ok? And are there any other substances that we should NOT mix vit c with?

Most hydrosols are made with distilled water. I've used them in my vit C serums.

No vitamin C with copper peptides.
