DIY Rosewater Facial Spray 

May 26, 2017

I have these Rose bushes in front of our house that I just adore. I’ll take an occasional Photo of them or admire them while sitting on my front porch. But I realized the other day, that I really should be enjoying them throughout my home as well. I started snipping off little roses and putting them around my house here and there .

I then decided to try to make my own rosewater as there are many ways to use this and I have always wanted to try it out.

I was so happy that this actually turned out! Win!

I started off by picking four small roses that were starting to wilt a bit. I then placed them in a large saucepan and poured  distilled water over the petals just until they were completely covered.

I then covered the pan with a lid and let it sit on low for about 25 minutes. I kept checking on it as I didn’t want it to actually simmer. (I read somewhere that the rosewater won’t be as potent if it gets too hot). The color of the petals ended up being a more pale, neutral color.
My whole house smelled like roses ! It was amazing.

Using a fine mesh strainer I poured the liquid  Into a glass container. I made about 2 cups of rosewater but only needed 2 ounces. So I put the rest in the fridge.

Once it completely cooled after a couple of hours, I used a small funnel to pour it into a small amber glass spray bottle. (I found mine at Sprouts)


I then added about 1/2 a tsp of Vitamin E Skin Oil and gently gave the bottle a good shake to mix.

This facial spray is very refreshing and quite simple to make! It is also very budget-friendly, especially if you have your own Rose bush.

This is a great post work-out spritz to freshen up. It would also be great for at the beach and I plan on bringing it camping with me this weekend !

It gives my face just a hint of moisture without making it greasy at all. Plus the light scent of roses is great.

After washing my face I spritz this rosewater on and then finish with my moisturizer.

I also sprayed this on my legs well I was feeling dried out in the sun and it was SO refreshing!

I can’t wait to try out different uses for rosewater! I’ll be sharing more rosewater uses in the coming weeks.
