Justine Youssef is a Darug/Sydney-based artist whose work uncovers links between family ritual, superstition, ecology, displacement, and settler relationships to land through scent, performance, video, and installation.

Using a special method of distillation inherited from her matrilineal family, Youssef’s hydrosol captures the delicate scent of rose. A natural water-based product, the hydrosol is produced during the steam distillation of fresh rose flowers and leaves.

Hydrosols typically carry the same benefits as an essential oil from the plant, with the benefit of a light texture suitable for full body use. Rich in antioxidants, rose hydrosol is soft and cleansing, and protects the skin from environmental stressors.

Mist or apply to perfume and clear your body and environment.
