Rosewater can be expensive and difficult to find, but luckily, it is easy to make. Once you have your rosewater, you can use it to flavor pastries and cakes, or you can use it in homemade beauty products. You can also use it as a toner and to freshen up your bed sheets. This article will show your four ways in which to make rosewater.
Gather your supplies. In addition to the rose essential oil and distilled water, you will also need a glass jar; if you are going to use this as a misting spray, then you will also need a misting bottle. Make sure that the bottle is made from glass or high-quality plastic. Avoid metal or low-quality plastic.
Fill the jar with water. Be sure to use distilled water instead of tap water; tap water often has bacteria in it. If you cannot find distilled water anywhere, then boil some filtered water and let it cool back down to room temperature.
Add 12 drops of rose essential oil.You will have to dilute this in a couple of teaspoons of vodka first or it will just float on top of the oil. Make sure that you are using pure essential oil, and not fragrance oil. Fragrance oil will only give you the smell, and none of the benefits found in roses and pure essential oils.
Consider transferring the rosewater to another container. You can leave the rosewater in the jar, or you can pour it through a funnel into a misting bottle and use it to freshen your linens or your face. READ MORE…
