Hi, lovelies! As I’m writing this right now I’m sipping on some deliciously tasting water since water is the key to natural beauty. Although, this post won’t be about water. It will be about something even greater that possesses the power to maintain the skin’s pH balance while also controlling excess oil, hydrate, revitalise and moisturise the skin, strengthen the skin cells and regenerate skin tissue, clean pores and tone the skin, reduce redness and blotchiness, enhance the quality of hair, and also help the aging of skin. Figured it out yet? Okay, I’ll give you a hint, it’s in the headline. Yes, you read that right, rosewater is the thing that can do all that. Now, there’s a lot of options where you can get rosewater, for instance, store-brought. Why not make it yourself though by using this DIY? Find out how to make rosewater yourself with all-natural ingredients below.
What you need: fresh roses, a large pot, and water.
Yup, it’s really that simple. Of course, there’s a lot of ways to make your own rosewater. For example, by crushing the petals or the old-fashioned way – boil them. I decided to do it the old-fashioned way.
1. Start by picking the petals from the rose into the large pot. It doesn’t really matter what color your roses are, but the fresher the better. It’s great if you can cut your own roses, but if you bought them in a store you might want to wash them in some cool water first to remove any potential chemicals that you don’t want to put on your skin.
2. Fill the large pot with enough water to cover them. Cover the pot with a lid and let the petals simmer until they lose their color – that’s when you know it’s done. Red roses should turn pink, yellow roses mustard, and pink roses… well, less pink.
3. Pour the rose water into a jar or into a bottle sprayer. Store in a cold place and take out whenever you feel like it!
