Easy DIY Rose Water, 15 Benefits & 15 Uses (2020)

Sharing is caring!

Rose water is a wonderful tool to use in your self care routine, especially when you choose to skip common harmful chemicals found in most skin care products by making it yourself. The best part… making your own rose water allows you to infuse your own love and care into your creation, is very easy to create, and doesn’t have to cost a lot.

3 Different Ways To Make Rose Water

There are three main ways to make rose water: using fresh rose petals, dried rose petals, or rose essential oil. Each of these tree methods of making rose water are just as effective as the other, but may have different costs.

Personally, we most often use fresh rose petals or dried rose petals because we have several large rose bushes on our property, providing us with copious amounts of rose petals throughout the year.

Regardless where you acquire your roses from, please be sure to use roses grown sustainably without use of harmful chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, or insecticides. These chemicals often used in conventional farming practices are harmful to human health.
