Instructions:

  1. Start by collecting fresh rose petals. It’s best to use organic roses that haven’t been treated with pesticides or chemicals. You can pick the petals from your own garden or purchase organic roses from a reputable source.
  2. Thoroughly rinse the rose petals under cold water to remove any dirt or debris. Gently pat them dry with a clean towel.
  3. Place a heat-resistant bowl or pot in the center of your stovetop. Make sure it’s large enough to hold the rose petals and water.
  4. Add the rose petals to the bowl or pot and pour enough distilled water over them to cover the petals completely. The water should be at least an inch or two above the petals.
  5. Place a heat-resistant plate or lid upside down over the bowl or pot. This will act as a cover to trap the steam during the distillation process.
  6. Turn on the heat to medium-low and allow the water to simmer. The steam will rise, carrying the essence of the rose petals with it.
  7. Let the steam and rose essence condense on the inverted lid or plate. As the steam cools, it will form droplets and collect on the surface of the lid.
  8. After about 30 minutes to an hour of simmering, turn off the heat and carefully lift the lid or plate. You’ll find the rosewater collected on the surface. This is the distilled rosewater.
  9. Using a clean, sterile funnel, transfer the rosewater into a sterilized glass bottle or container. Make sure to strain out any stray petals or debris that may have entered during the process.
  10. Allow the rosewater to cool completely before sealing the bottle. Store it in the refrigerator to prolong its freshness and shelf life.

Now, your homemade rosewater is ready to use in your beauty care routine. Remember to keep it refrigerated and discard if it develops an off smell or color. Enjoy the gentle and fragrant benefits of your DIY rosewater!

Rosewater is not just a cosmetic product, it’s a feeling.

Instructions:

  1. Start by crushing or grinding the dried rosebuds gently to break them up and release their fragrance. You can use a mortar and pestle or a clean coffee grinder for this step. Avoid grinding them into a fine powder; coarse texture is preferable.
  2. Place a heat-resistant bowl or pot in the center of your stovetop. Ensure it’s large enough to hold the rosebuds and water.
  3. Add the crushed dried rosebuds to the bowl or pot.
  4. Pour distilled water over the rosebuds, enough to cover them completely. The water level should be about an inch or two above the rosebuds.
  5. Place a heat-resistant plate or lid upside down over the bowl or pot to act as a cover.
  6. Turn on the heat to medium-low and allow the water to simmer. This will release the essential oils and fragrance from the dried rosebuds.
  7. Let the mixture simmer for about 30 minutes to an hour, allowing the steam to carry the essence of the roses.
  8. After simmering, turn off the heat and carefully remove the lid or plate. You’ll find the rose-scented water collected on the surface.
  9. Using a clean, sterile funnel, transfer the rosewater into a sterilized glass bottle or container. You can use a strainer or cheesecloth to remove any remaining rosebud pieces.
  10. Allow the rosewater to cool completely before sealing the bottle. It’s recommended to store it in the refrigerator to maintain its freshness and extend its shelf life.

Your homemade rosewater from dried rosebuds is now ready to be used in your beauty care routine. Remember to discard it if it develops an off smell or color.

Enjoy the lovely fragrance and the benefits of your DIY rosewater!
