Ingredients

  • Fresh roses that are pesticide-free, grown in a garden you’re familiar with like a friend or family member. 
  • A large pot 
  • Distilled water
  • A small heat-safe bowl (For pure rose water)

Instructions

  1.  Thoroughly clean the roses by, filling a bowl with ice cold water and shake the flowers around in the water to make sure there are no bugs flying around. Then pick off the petals. 
  2. Pour the contents through a strainer and wash the petals again.
  3. Then pat dry the petals.
  4. Place the rose petals in a pot and pour in just enough water to cover the petals. Too much water will dilute the rose water, we don’t want that.                         .  
  5. Then cover with a lid and let it simmer until the petals lose color. 
  6. For pure rose water, place the heat safe bowl on top of the petals, and cover the pot with a lid. As the petals simmer, steam will collect on the lid of the pot and drip into the bowl, which is considered pure rose water.  

  7. Once the petals lose color(when it gets lighter) carefully remove the bowl and leave to cool. Then transfer the rose water to a glass bottle or jar.
  8. Add cucumbers or lemon (optional)
