What is rose water?
Rose water is water infused or scented with rose petals which can be used as a perfume, culinary or even medicinal purposes. It’s even great for the hair and skin! I constantly add rose water to my everyday use and see immediate results.
What’s special about rose water?
It has anti-inflammatory properties! As you continue to read this post, you’ll realize there’s more to rose water than just a setting spray.
Where to buy rose water?
You can buy pure rose water at your local organic/beauty store(s) or online. They usually range from $4 – $15 depending on the ingredients. I highly recommend Mario Badescu’s Facial Spray with Aloe Herbs and Rosewater ($5 – $7), Heritage Store’s Rose Petals Rosewater Facial Toner ($6 – $11) which is the best organic rose water or Pure Rose Water Facial Toner by Poppy Austin that’s vegan and cruelty-free.
However, for those who want to save money, you can easily purchase organic dried rose petals on Amazon for $5 – $15. I use these roses for my rose water. You may be thinking, “How is this a cheap alternative?”. You buy a pack of dried rose petals. Therefore you’re stretching the amount which can last for an entire year or two. Additionally, you can add essential oils or any other ingredients. The disadvantage with buying store-bought ready-made rose water is that it may quickly need to be restocked. Also, you must be watchful of the ingredients in the product. You may be allergic to them.
How to make rose water?
After you buy the organic dried rose petals, bring water in a pot to a boil then add the number of rose petals to your liking. Just remember, the more rose petals you add, the greater the benefits. Let the water infused rose petals cool off, strain then enjoy! In addition, you can add essential oils to the mix. Tada, you have organic rose water! Organic rose water for face is great for clearing acne and discoloration.

In conclusion, rose water can be used in many ways such as a toner, setting spray and more! It’s a miracle product that is good for the hair, skin and immune system. Don’t be afraid to experiment with this ingredient!
