DIY Rose Water for Skincare

Hey Passionista-

I have been admiring these 2 rose brushes that grown in front of my parents room. They have been there for years. For some reason this year I took a strong interest in watching them grow (maybe due to having to look at them everyday due to being quarantined). Now that they are fully bloomed, all I wanted to do is cut them and make stuff. Don’t worry I didn’t cut all of them off but I did snag a few.

I made my own rose water. This is my second time making rose water. the first time I made rose water I used a Make It Classy DIY kit, where all the ingredient were included and I just followed the direction on the recipe card provided. But this time. I cut about 7 roses from the rose brush and made some homemade rose water. And you already know, I’m going to share with you how I did it in this blog.

Here’s what you’ll need

  • Some organic rose (Please don’t use store bought roses, they have pesticides on them and you don’t want to spray that on your skin to get in your blood stream)
  • Distilled Water
  • A strainer
  • Container for storage

Okay, so after I cut my roses from the rose brush, I gently picked the peddles from the buds and rinsed them with cold water.

Next, using a pot I boiled about 4 cups of distilled water on the stove. Be sure to let the water come to a boil before adding your roses.

Once your water is boiling you can add your rose peddles and place a cover over the top. Let them boil until the color has left the roses, about 10 -12 minutes.

Finally, let the water cool, then place in a spray bottle or jar for storage.

For best use keep your rose water refrigerated. You can use and store your home made rose water for up to 1 month.

XOXO
