How to make Rose Water
Rose water is a great natural alternative to toner. It has been suggested that rose water has strong anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce rosacea, redness and even eczema as well as being anti ageing. Rose water is very easy to make yourself at home. You just need some fresh rose petals and distilled or filtered water.
Take your petals and place them in a pan, submerge them in the highest quality water you have (preferably distilled) and bring to just under boiling point, gently simmer till the rose petals have lost their colour (this is harder with white roses and has to become somewhat more intuitive).
When finished, strain out the liquid and keep in glass bottles :)
