DIY Rosewater Toner

The delicate appearance and exquisite scent of the rose have associated this flower with love, beauty and well-being for centuries. Many claim that the essential oil made from roses has the ability to balance and soothe both emotionally and topically. Rose oil perfume is calming to the spirit, and beauty products made from roses are especially beneficial for inflamed, dry or sensitive skin.

Commercially prepared rosewater is a byproduct of the steam distillation process used to produce the very expensive and highly valued oil, and it makes an excellent toner. It’s simple and enjoyable to make your own rosewater toner with little effort and expense.

Ingredients:
• petals from 2 roses equivalent to 1 cup of packed petals
• 2 cups boiling water

Directions:
•Pour 2 cups of boiling water over the petals in a pan, covering them with a lid.
• Allow the water and petals to sit until the mixture cools to room temperature.
• After placing a strainer over a 2-cup capacity sterilized glass bottle, pour the water into the container.
• It is recommended to keep some of the rosewater in a smaller bottle for everyday use and store the remainder in the refrigerator for about one week.
