2 cups purified or distilled water
10 drops vegetable glycerine
Combine water & rose petals in a pot & cook on low heat for 1 hour.
Strain water into sterile container such as a Mason jar & throw out petals. Add glycerine drops, stir, & let cool. ***A drop or 2 of rose essential oil (if you're fortunate enough to be able to afford purchasing it!) can also be added to make it even stronger.
Rose water is a wonderful moisturizer & is great for calming problem skin. (Think eczema & diaper rash)... It also helps to soothe injuries & burns. I love to mist it directly on my face or pillow before bed, as it's very relaxing.
