making rose water

I made my rose water
and have been using it on my face
for just over a week now.
I have to admit my skin does feel softer,
and the rose water smells
oh so good.
I used a distilled method found
there are easier ways,
but I wanted to give this one a try.
Now I'm thinking of making
a rose water linen spray,
if you've ever made your own
with rose petals,
I would love to know how...


  1. I love rosewater, thanks for sharing this! I can't wait to make some of my own, I always buy it and it's expensive.

  2. I haven't but it does sound fun! I have had rose pental lemonade before and it was really good!

  3. Wow! Your rosewater looks great, and the smell must be lovely. I really like your clothespin bag. The red fabric looked so great on it.

  4. I have never done this Deb but I will certainly give it a try.

  5. Mmm, love rosewater! Thanks for reminding me about making it.

  6. would you believe I looked this up online this morning??? I have been wanting some lovely smells for my home, and I love I've got to try it!

  9. Wow, this sounds dreamy!! Definitely something new to try! Love the idea.

  10. Do you have an especially fragrant rose to recommend? Mine are kind of lack luster.

  11. I have not made rosewater, but lots of lavender water. I make linen spray and also little sachet bags of it. I have a huge glass jar that I put the lavender buds in after they have dried in a paperbag. Throughout the winter months when I want a smell of freshness I scatter a handful on the carpets, crushing them as I go. I leave them to sit and when I vacuum them up it is delicious. Also make lemon lavender cupcakes and lavender shorbread. I think I need to get some rose petals from my mom!

  12. I've never made rosewater, but I should! It sounds heavenly. I also have lavender that I could put to a similar use. Thanks for the great idea!
