Hampden Park Co-op is packed with products you may not have tried before. Here's one:
These tiny bottles of distilled flower water made in France have several uses. A drop or two will add aroma to cocktails such as the gin fizz. Or dab it around the rim of iced tea glasses just before you serve. Recipes for elegant tea cookies call for orange flower water, as does the recipe for authentic French chocolate mousse. For a subtle and affordable perfume, dab rose flower water on the pressure points of your neck and between your breasts. To use as a skin tonic, fill a spray bottle with mineral water and two dashes of flower water.
