You Can Make Your Own Rose Water…It’s SO Easy!

You can make your own rose water by simply covering pesticide-free rose petals with pure water and using a pestle or blunt edged wooden spoon to mash them up. Let the concoction sit for a few hours on your counter or on a sunny windowsill and then strain and bottle. The more water you use the more diluted the final product will be; the more petals you use the more rose infused. It’s not rocket science so don’t overthink it. A couple handfuls of rose petals and half a cup of water is a good ratio. Store in the fridge and use within a couple weeks. Natural is always so simple!


Use the water to gently clean your face before bed or as a soothing stress reducing additive to your bathwater.
