Rose water is my must-have beauty item; I cannot live without it. My recipe is;

1 cup Rose petals
2 cups of filtered water
A heat resistant glass bowl with lid
A metal strainer or a cheesecloth
1. Boil 2 cups of water to a rolling-boil.
2. Wash rose petals and place them in the glass bowl.
3. Pour the boiling water over the rose petals and close the lid.
4. Allow it to steep for at least 30 minutes.
5. Strain when the liquid is completely cooled.
6. Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to ten days.

I always use fresh roses from local farmer’s market. I make sure they are chemical free. Each time I get perfect rose water.
