How to Make Your Own Rose Water!

Hello Gorgeous!

I love owning rose water spray from the department stores, but lately with the way the economy it is too expensive!  I found a way to have what I love and not spend too much money.  For Valentines Day I received a beautiful vase of my favorite roses (Latina Roses), so instead of throwing them away after a couple of days I made rose water.  

Rose Water Ingredients:

Handful of rose petals (wash all the chemicals off gently first) 
2 cups of spring water, boiling

In a bowl, place the roses and pour water on top of them.  Cover with a plate and let them sit for a few hours.  Using a strainer, drain the water into a gorgeous spray bottle of choice.  

Keep it in your purse to spray over your makeup during the day as a refresher or keep in the bathroom as an astringent.  You can use this spray several times a day!

Benefits of Rose Water:

Normal Skin: purified and cleansed
Oily Skin: balanced and toned
Sensitive Skin: soothed and cooled
Mature Skin: toned and rejuvenated

Other Benefits:

Helps heal sunburns and wounds.
Apply it as an aftershave to soothe irritated skin.

  1. Rose petals are one of the best source to keep your skin nourished, glowing and moisturized. Rose Water has a lot of benefits such as rose oil that adds fragrance to the body, introduced as a skin toner, anti-bacterial and antiseptic liquid, primary flavor on many sweet treats and many more.
