The Magic of Queen of Hungary Water: Unlocking Radiant Skin Naturally

In the pursuit of healthy and radiant skin, countless beauty products flood the market. However, amidst this sea of options, it’s worth exploring ancient remedies that have withstood the test of time.

One such gem is Queen of Hungary Water. With its rich history and natural ingredients, this traditional skincare tonic offers a range of benefits for your skin. In this blog post, we will delve into the advantages of using Queen of Hungary Water and provide you with a simple recipe to make it yourself.

The Origins and Legend Of Queen of Hungary Water

Queen Of Hungary Water is the world’s first cure all skin tonic. It traces its origins back to the 14th century, during the reign of Queen Elisabeth of Hungary, who was renowned for her stunning complexion. The legend says that a renowned alchemist, inspired by her beauty, created a special elixir to preserve her youthful appearance. According to the legend, it reversed her appearance so much that the 25 year old grand-duke of Lithuania asked for her hand in marriage when she was 70!

Others believe that early Gypsies formulated it and claimed it to be a cure-all. The Gypsies claimed it could be used as a perfume, hair rinse, mouthwash, headache remedy, aftershave, foot bath, etc… WOW, right? One product, many uses!

Thus, Queen of Hungary Water was born, known for its revitalizing properties.

Queen of Hungary’s Water is an excellent astringent for the face (both rose water and witch hazel are light astringent tonics) and a great rinse for dark hair. An astringent is used to remove excess oils from the skin or hair. In addition, they tone the skin and help prepare it for moisturizing. While astringents are especially appropriate for oily skin, any type of skin can benefit from using an astringent.

This magical water has been hailed as the first herbal product ever to be produced and marketed.  I have seen Queen of Hungary’s Water for sale in expensive department stores like Neiman Marcus. Use this recipe and make it for the cost of a few herbs and a bottle of vinegar. If you want to get really snazzy, find a beautiful, antique bottle to store it in – that would be TOTALLY Goddess!

Recipe for Queen of Hungary Water:

This recipe is from my Herbalism mentor, Rosemary Gladstar. This recipe is written in “parts”. One part equals one tablespoon, and two parts equals two tablespoons. Or if you’re using ounces, one part is one ounce while two parts equals two ounces. Simply use the same unit of measurement for all of the ingredients in your herbal recipe.

I use organic and responsibly wild-crafted herbs for my preparations. I’ve added links to the brands I use below. Once you click them, you will be taken to the product in my Amazon store.


* All ingredient measurements in this recipe are for dried herbs.

NOTE: Adding the clear quartz crystal to this recipe is my personal suggestion. Clear quartz amplifies energy, so I use it in all of my herbal preparations to boost the energy and magic. I prefer using raw stones instead of polished, but either will get the job done.


    1. Place all herbs in a widemouthed jar. Add enough vinegar to come about an inch or two above the herb mixture. Add your clear quartz crystal. Cover tightly and let sit in a warm spot for two to three weeks.
    2. Strain. Reserve the liquid. To each cup of herbal vinegar add 1/2 – 1 cup of rose water or witch hazel. Add a drop or two of essential oil, if desired.
    3. Re-bottle. This product does not need to be refrigerated and will stay preserved indefinitely.
    4. Store the Queen of Hungary Water in a cool, dark place to preserve its freshness.

Usage: After cleansing your face, simply apply Queen of Hungary Water to your skin using a cotton pad or by gently spritzing it onto your face. Allow it to dry naturally, and follow up with your preferred moisturizer.


With its centuries-old reputation for promoting healthy and radiant skin, Queen of Hungary Water is a skincare elixir worth exploring. By incorporating this natural tonic into your routine, you can enjoy the benefits of its balancing, refreshing, and antioxidant properties. Give your skin the royal treatment it deserves with this ancient recipe, and unlock a naturally radiant complexion.
