One of our favourite things is seeing fresh roses bloom in our moms garden. Not only are the pretty .. but they make the perfect facial treatment, Rose Water Spray.
DIY Rose Water Spray is probably one of the easiest sprays to make, and the benefits of rose water on your skin are mind-blowing! Not only does rose water balance your skin’s pH levels, it also hydrates, moisturizes and soothes your skin. Because of its natural anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties it gets rid of acne, clogged pores, and heals scars/cuts. It minimizes redness of irritated skin and acts as an amazing anti-aging agent as it minimizes wrinkles.
Here are 4 simple steps to create your own Rose Water Spray:
- Pick/buy organic roses, break off rose petals, place in a bowl and give them a rinse.
You want them to be organic so there are no unnecessary chemicals added to the mix.
- Boil hot water and pour over the roses. You’ll see the water will start to turn colour and the roses will become translucent. This is look you’re after; it only takes a couple of minutes!
- Once the roses are completely translucent, use a strainer to pour the rose water into another bowl. Wait until the rose water is cooled and transfer to a glass jar.
- Spray on your face morning and night and voila! your skin will LOVE you!
The thing we love about rose water is that it is so simple to make, and the beauty of it all is that we know exactly what we’re putting on our skin.
