How To: Make Rose Water

Rose water has been used for years in alcoholic beverages, savory and sweet recipes, facial astringents and skin care regimens. I made mine to make a rose water facial astringent. It is so simple to make your own, and worth it just for the artisanal effect.

Boil some water, once boiling pour over petals and let cool slightly with out lid on. Mix the petals together as the concoction cools. Once full steam ahead is through put a lid on your jar and throw it in the fridge. I like to label mine with the date, this is a good point to do so.

After 24 hours it is time to strain out your rose water. Put a strainer over a large bowl and pour the mixture through it. Push into the herbs with a spoon to get all the juice out. Pour your water back into the mason jar and store in the fridge for up to a month.
