Make Your Own Rosewater

Create a delicate rosewater easily at home! Use this beautiful water as a wonderful facial and skin freshener, add to your homemade skin care creations, and more. It is nourishing to the skin, and delightfully scented of classic rose. Use also to help balance hormones (great for hot flashes) and to ease stress as it calms the central nervous system.


1 cup fresh rose petals (organic/pesticide free)

2 cups purified water

1 dark glass bottle with atomizer spray


In a saucepan add the rose petals and water. Cover and bring to a soft boil, then cover and reduce heat to a gentle simmer for about 10 minutes. Remove the pan from heat and allow to completely cool (keep this lid on). Strain the petals reserving the water. Pour the reserved water into the glass container, cap and store in the refrigerator for up to one week. Use freely as a facial toner or quick refreshing pick-me-up during the day.
