Want to know how to make your own rose water? It’s much easier than you might think!

If you are lucky enough to have your own roses, you have most of the needed ingredients right on hand! If not, ask your family, friends, or neighbors who might have roses. Ask them if you can clip some of their wilted flowers for your own personal use. Or you can tell them that you will make them a bottle of rose water with their roses. Who could say no? Remember to always use rose petals that have not been sprayed with pesticides!


Two ways to do your own rose water:

1. Boil 2 cups of water and pout over a container that is filled with rose petals. Red and pink roses usually release the most fragrance but any color will do! Cover the container and allow it to sit until it is completely cool. Strain and keep your rose water in the refrigerator!

2. You can also fill a glass container with a tight fitting lid (such as a Mason jar) about 2/3 full of rose petals. Cover the petals with distilled water. Place the container in direct sun for 2 or 3 days. Shake once each day. Strain out the rose petals. It’s that easy! Yes, you can leave the jar in the sun as long as you like, but chances are that the roses have released all their compounds within 72 hours.

You can also make a terrific rose tea by steeping a handful of rose petals in boiling water for about 10 minutes. Be sure to put a lid on the pot while it is gently boiling. Strain out the leaves and drink two or three cups each day!

You gotta love roses! No matter what you do to them, they look and smell beautiful!
