Because we like to keep things simple around here, I am going to show you the easiest methods of creating rose water.
Before we get into the details, let's take a moment to consider why we might want to make rose water and how to use it.
USES FOR ROSE WATER:
- add fragrance to homemade cosmetics
- use an an astringent for normal to dry skin
- add to the bath to provide a soothing aroma
- include as part of a shampoo or hair rinse
- use in facial scrubs and masks
- spray over bed sheets for a lovely scent
- Glass jar (wide-mouth, quart size)
- Rose petals, fresh or dried – 1/3 cup
- Witch hazel – 1/3 cup
- Distilled water – 2/3 cup
- Place rose petals in a jar. You will need about 1 cup of rose petals, less if using dried roses. (This does not need to be exact.)
- Mix water and witch hazel and pour over the rose petals.
- Be sure the flowers are covered by an extra 2 inches of liquid.
- Cover with lid and place in a warm area out of direct sunlight.
- Leave it for 2 weeks.
- Strain out the flowers and pour rose water into a clean jar or bottle. Label. Store in a cool place.
- Glass jar (large, wide-mouth canning jar)
- Rose petals, dried – 1/4 cup (where to buy)
- Distilled water – 1-1/4 cups (heated until hot, not boiling)
- Place dried roses in a heatproof jar and pour hot water over the top.
- Let sit until cool.
- Strain out the roses and store in the fridge.
