Rose Water

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 :+1:t2: 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 :rofl:

Sounds delightful! Can it just be kept at room temperature?

It sure can :+1:t2: some place dark and cooler would be better, mine is just in my bathroom closet.

I order mine online since I make a bunch of different things. I ordered a pound this time.

Me neither! I’m so glad it turned out so easy.

This sounds like such a great DIY beauty product! I had no idea you could by dried roses. Would this rose water also be good to use for cooking and cocktail recipes that call for rose water?
