I work with herbs a lot and yesterday learned how to make rose water for use as a toner, astringent, redness and inflammation reducer, and it helps maintain the skins pH levels. It’s a great cleanser and is gentler than anything with added chemicals also it’s pretty cheap and easy lol
You add one part dried rose buds and petals to two parts water and simmer until the roses lose all of their color.
Then you just cool, strain, and bottle. I’ve read it’s good up til a year but it never lasts that long
