      Hello Ms. Swati.

      Thank you for sharing such a valuable piece of information about rose water with us. I didn't know that it was originated from Iran. The various usage you've described in your article is surely gonna help everyone, including me. Though I have a question for you.

      My eyes become red and itchy every summer. Although I use several eye drops as prescribed by an ophthalmologist, it was not a permanent solution for my eyes. So, I wanted to know whether rose water can help me treat my eyes?
