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