Queen of Hungary Oil Multipurpose

Sold Out

4 fl oz / 113 ml

As with many early European perfumes, Queen of Hungary's Water is a healing tonic born in response to the Black Death. Its active ingredient, rosemary, purified the poisoned air associated with plague. The oldest recipe for Queen of Hungary's Water was written in hand by Queen Elizabeth of Hungary. In her testimony, she was cured of gout and appeared so beautiful she was courted by the king of Poland in her old age. Similar therapeutic perfumes have long existed in traditional medicine. Despite the grave robber's legend, Four Thieves Vinegar was likely named in contempt of the gypsies who imported their age-old folk remedies into Western Europe. Our version of Queen of Hungary's Water replaces grape-based alcohol with oil infused by typical Romani cure-alls for the multipurpose treatment of skin and hair.
