If you have a bunch of fresh roses
at home or you have decided to pick
them up from your garden, why not make
your own rose water to spray
over your face and body during hot summer days?
All you need is:
- 2 cups of distilled water
- 1 cup of fresh rose petals (about 8 to 10 roses)
- 100% pure rose oil
Gently tie the rose petals into a piece of gauze,
place it in a pot, and pour distilled water over it.
Cover and boil on low fire for 30 minutes.
When finished, add a few drops of rose oil
and let cool, covered overnight. In the morning,
remove the petals and pour the rose water into
a spray bottle and keep in a cool, dark place.
