Repurposed Roses Part1: How to make homemade rosewater

As promised here is my post on how to make homemade rosewater.  Rosewater acts as a natural facial cleanser and toner.  Some say that rosewater helps keep you looking younger… who knows.  One  benefit of using rosewater as a part of your daily beauty regime is that it can help reduce redness from irritated skin.     Steps to making homemade rosewater  1. Remove rose petals 2. Boil rose petals until the color is drained from the petals 3. Strain the water to keep petals out 4. Pour into a recycled/repurposed glass bottle 5. Store in fridge to keep cool (lasts probably about 3 days or so)        Have a lovely weekend! with love xo
