Summer is creeping up on us, here in Vancouver, and my roses are beginning to bud. In just a week or two my rose bush is going to be filled with beautiful fragrant yellow roses! I love having a garden full of fresh flowers, but it always makes me a little bit sad to see the roses eventually droop, brown and lose their beautiful petals.
Rose petals are antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, moisturizing, filled with antioxidants and have a lovely natural fragrance– all which make them perfect for natural skincare. That’s why I was so excited when I saw that Diane from Turning the Clock Back had submitted her How To Make Homemade Rose Water Tutorial for our HCF DIY of the Week Series!
Diane’s rose water is simple to make and only takes a couple minutes of active time to assemble. Leave it for two weeks to “brew” and you’ll have a lovely mason jar full of rose water that’s perfect for making natural skin toner, hair rinse, linen spray and a ton of other homemade rose scented products! Check out Diane’s Rose Water Tutorial for a list of Diane’s recommended uses along with the easy instructions.
