Rose water is a natural alternative to many conventional beautyproducts. But the best thing is that you can make your own rose water in no time. Since I am so enthusiastic about it, I would like to show you today how it works, and betray, for what you can use your rose water.
The effects of rose water
First, I would like to introduce you to the many application possibilities.
- Rose water for purer skin: Rose water has an antibacterial effect, should reduce redness and have a slightly dulling effect. It also provides moisture.
- Rose water as a toner: Rose water can also be used to clean the skin as a toner.
- Rose water as a bath additive: Give some rose water into your bath water for the additional care.
- Rose water as a hair parfume: For a gentle scent, spray some rose water into the hair length.
Purchased rose water is usually made with the help of essential rose oil. But rose water can also be made from the two ingredients that are named from rose petals and water, as I show you now.
DIY – recipe
As mentioned, we use rose petals and water on my prescription. In addition you need a small spray bottle and a glass bottle as well as a small cooking pot.
- Place the rose petals in a small cooking pot.
- Fill the cooking pot with water so that the rose petals are covered.
- Bring to a boil and simmer on a low level until the color has dissolved from the rose leaves.
- Then switch off the cooker and pull it all out and let it cool down.
- Use a small funnel and sieve to fill the spray bottle and the glass bottle (if not everything in the spray bottle).
- Done 🙂 In the refrigerator, the rose water keeps 14 days to a month.
In many oriental kitchens, rose water is also used for cooking, this one I have only used as a beautyproduct. Depending on the quality of the roses used, the water changes. I wish you a lot of fun while testing.
