Rose water face spray is such a trend today, and rightfully so! I have always sworn by incorporating rose into every possible product for skin that I could get, including face wash, eye cream, face mists, masks and more. ( See complete ingredient list and recipe below).
Why do you need rose water in your life?
Its packed full of vitamins including: Vitamin C promotes collagen production, Vitamin B3, which calms down irritation and soothes redness, Vitamin E protects your face from air pollution, and also encourages blood circulation in your skin.
Need more convincing??
Rose helps maintain your skin’s pH balance, controls excess oil production, helps cure eczema, reduces and prevents eye puffiness, and has anti aging properties, and reduces dark spots. See more reasons Here.
But why make your own when you could just buy any one of these?
There s quite a range for pricing as you can see, and they are packed full of questionable alcohols, preservatives, and chemicals that I didn’t really like putting on my face. So I decided to embark on the journey of creating my own 100% natural face mist, full of essential oils and fresh ingredients that I felt better about drenching my face in several times a day. Also, the price tag on these can add up. I broke even with 1 batch for myself and some friends versus paying for these chemical filled bottles every few months!
SO WHY NOT MAKE YOUR OWN?!
Basically rose water is the business, and I swear by its application. Not only did I use rose water, but I added some geranium, ylang ylang, peppermint, hibiscus, aloe, argan oil, and witch hazel to give my skin the refresh it needs multiple times a day
You will need:
Organic Dried Rose Petals
Glass Spray Bottle
Vitamin E Oil -1 tsp
Organic Argan Oil -1 tsp
Ylang Ylang Essential Oil -2 drops
Geranium Essential Oil -4 drops
Peppermint Essential Oil -4 drops

How to make the actual rose water first:
- Filtered Water
- Dried red rose petals
- A funnel
- A glass bowl
- A spray bottle/jar
- In a small clean pot, bring the filtered water to a boil. Use enough water for at least 1 bottle, but I made extra and stored it so I can have it ready when i made some for friends.
- Next, add in a handful of dried red rose petals (you can use fresh but make sure they are fragrant and not sprayed with chemicals)
- Cover the pot and gently simmer the rose petals until they lose their color
- Turn off the heat and let the rose water cool completely
- Once cool, strain the rose water into a clean bowl.
- Store in a sealed container or spray bottle in the fridge.
