We wanted to give you a sneak peak into how our rosewater is made – and how you could even make it at home! Watch the video below, or follow the step-by-step directions to make your own, organic rosewater.
- One dozen organic roses, and any dry herbs you wish to add (we add calendula and chamomile in this video)
- One pot
- One heat-safe saucer or small plate
- One heat-safe small bowl
- Distilled water
- Empty jar for the end product
- Gently peel off rose petals and place in strainer
- Rinse with cool water
- Place the heat-safe plate on the bottom of your pot, face-down
- Place the heat-safe bowl on top of the plate, face-up
- Press the rose petals into the pot, in the empty space between the bowl and pot, and on top of the face-down plate
- Slowly pour distilled water onto the rose petals, until they are covered, making sure no water or petals are inside of the bowl
- Invert the pot’s lid (with the handle inside of the pot) so that the rosewater steam can drip into the bowl
- Place ice on top of lid
- Put on medium-high heat and let sit until your bowl is filled with distilled rosewater!
- Carefully remove and place into a glass jar
The rosewater should be good for 5-6 months, but keeping it in the fridge will ensure that it stays fresh!
