Valentine Day Countdown, Day 4 – DIY: How To Make Rose Water

IMG_1418

This DIY is so appropriate for upcoming Valentine’s Day. Make this for yourself or share with the  special people in your life, an inexpensive fun way to pamper yourself! You can use as a toner or body spray for the skin – the natural  fragrance and moisturizing properties make it especially refreshing.

What you need: fresh roses, a large pot and distilled water

Start by plucking the petals from the roses – you won’t need the bulb or stems.  The fresher your roses are, the better your results will be. Rinse the petals in some cool water to get rid of any  potential chemicals.

Place the rose petals in a large pot and fill with just enough distilled water  to cover the rose petals. Too much water will dilute the rose water.  Cover  with a lid and let simmer until the petals lose their color. As the petals simmer,  steam will collect on the lid of the pot and drip in to the bowl, which is pure  rose water. Once the petals lose their color, drain the liquid into a jar – this is your  rose water! Store in a cool place and give your skin a spritz whenever you need  a sweet and refreshing little pick me up.
