If you’re a domestic queen, you can even make your own rose water—and it’s super easy!

Step 1: Fill a pot with fresh rose petals and cover it with distilled water. The water should only just over the rose petals. Too much water and your rose oil will be very diluted.

Step 2: Cover the pot, turn the fire to low flame, and slowly bring it to a boil.

Step 3: Turn off heat, keep the cover on, and let the water come to room temperature. Once at room temperature, strain out petals and pour into a clean, sanitised bottle.
