How To Make Rose Water At Home | Homemade Rose Water Photo Tutorial
I’ll be honest, the only rose water which I have ever used is from Dabur. (Back in the School days!) And that also did not suit my skin very well. So last month after learning about so many benefits of rose water, I really wanted to include it in my skincare routine. But the rose water available in the market is filled with chemicals and preservatives. Plus the one which says that is ‘pure’ or ‘100% natural’ was out of my budget! Especially thinking about using it on an everyday lifetime basis! So I started using my own homemade rose water at just Rs.20! And today I’ll share with you how easily you can make rose water at home!
How To Make Rose Water At Home
If you have a rose plant which has many roses then you can use these roses to prepare rose water. It is advised to use Indian roses. But I did not have a rose plant so I used the rose petals which I can easily get from a flower shop.
Steps to your own DIY rosewater spray –
Separate the rose petals from entire roses. At this step, you can keep those petals aside which look too dirty or colorless. After that, clean the rose petals by soaking them in water. Gently drown them in the water to clean all the dirt. (By the way, we are on my kitchen island right now!) I remember, after opening the polythene bag containing rose petals, and through this entire process, the fragrance of roses had spread in entire kitchen! (Yea, I kinda started feeling romantic! ) Ahem, let’s move forward!
Judging by the quantity of the rose water pour some distilled water in a utensil and bring it to boil. I had a lot of rose petals! Because I wanted to make rose water for everyone at home and also wanted to use it in my DIYs! So use water depending on the quantity of the rose petals you have.
Once the water is boiled, turn off the stove and transfer all the rose petals into the utensil. Make sure that your hands are clean! You will also require pressing the rose petals gently so that all the petals get nicely soaked into the hot water. You can use a flat spoon to gently press the petals.
Then cover the utensil and let it stay overnight. The next morning when you uncover the utensil you will notice that the rose petals have turned pale. And there you have your pure and fresh rose water for all kinds of beauty usage!
Next, all you need to do is – with the help of a spoon push the petals aside to pour the rose water into a clean bottle. I have transferred my rose water into tiny Bisleri bottles! And some of it I poured into my clean empty spray bottle. This freshly prepared rose water looks deep red in color and its fragrance is intoxicating! I love the fragrance of natural roses! What about you?
How To Use Rose Water Spray
- I use it on a daily basis as a toner. It feels very refreshing and cool on the skin! And people from all skin types and age groups can use it without giving a second!
- I use it on both my face and body. I have been using it as a body mist after a bath. I even spray it on my underarms, to cut down on any mild odor.
- I have also begun using it in my DIYs.
- And sometimes I spray it on me when I want to dive into natural roses fragrance! (Of course, it’s not long lasting! But it instantly refreshes my mood!)
How To Preserve Homemade Rose Water
I suggest you create rose water in small batches depending upon your requirement. Store it in your refrigerator and try to finish it within 15-20 days. You can take it out on travels too but make sure that it doesn’t stay out for more than 4-5 hours. Since there are no preservatives added it is likely to degrade faster if not stored properly. Now that doesn’t mean that you start worrying right before every use! Just store it in the fridge and use it cool-cool!
