Homemade skincare remedies I -Rose water


Rose water is applied on skin in order to make it smooth and fragrant. Here s how you can make it at home.

Gather about 2 lbs. of scented petals before they fall. The fresher the better. The actual ratio of Roses to water depends on the color and fragrance desired. You can start with about 2 cups of rose petals firmly packed to a litre of water.

Place in an enamel saucepan or preferably earthenware pan. Cover with cold soft water (preferably rainwater). Bring almost to a boil. Let cool. Strain. Be careful not to scorch.

Red Roses cause the water to turn a pale pink. Other color roses turn the water a brownish yellow muddy color.

The water will remain scented for a good two days.

Refrigerated it lasts longer.
