A step-by-step tutorial on how to make homemade rosewater + a recipe for DIY Rosewater Face Toner! You'll learn all of the benfits of rosewater for your skin too.The maven is B-A-C-K with a little DIY Video action! Who’s excited? Just me? Welcome to my life.

Also included in my life is a fridge full of homemade kombucha, cold brew iced coffee and of course homemade rosewater. Because everyone’s fridge is stocked with various colors of the rainbow in refreshment form, right? More like an assortment of diet pop flavors, but I’d like to believe my refrigerator soulmate exists out in this great big world.

Sorry if I’m making absolutely no sense today. I am currently deep in the throws of video editing and I can’t remember the last time I saw the light of day. So much respect for YouTubers (insert hands in the air emoji).

Today’s video escapades resulted in this 5 minutes of glory. Approximately 1 minute of it involves me making the recipe for Homemade Rosewater, and the rest is spent staring at my lovely face explaining to the world exactly how to use rosewater.

Anywho, if you’re curious you should probably watch the latest in my adventures in YouTube. We’re making homemade rosewater and I’ll show you how I like to use it in my skincare routine.


What is Rosewater + Rosewater Benefits

Rosewater is exactly as it sounds, roses + water. It gives you all the benefits of water plus the bonus of the anti-inflammatory and hydrating advantages of rose. Plus it smells awesome.

Rosewater is used in some cuisines, but I find myself using it most frequently in my skincare routine. People live and die by this stuff, but I’m not desperate enough to spend $10 on a small bottle. Espectially since it’s so easy to make at home.

Fortunately, I’m thrifty and was able to make over 3 bottles for the same price. Love me a good deal, and especially when the DIY version is stupidly easy.

What are the benefits of rosewater?

  • helps balance the pH of skin
  • soothes skin irritation
  • reduces redness (has anti-inflammatory properties!)
  • may reduce fine lines and wrinkles


A step-by-step tutorial on how to make homemade rosewater + a recipe for DIY Rosewater Face Toner! You'll learn all of the benfits of rosewater for your skin too.

How to Use Rosewater

Now for some of the ways I like to use this rosewater in my skincare routine:

1. Skin Toner – by and far this is the #1 way I like to use it. Apple cider vinegar can also be a great skin toner, but let’s be real rosewater smells so much better and is just as effective.

2. In the bath – I’ll add about a cup to my bath water for extra hydration and relaxation from the scent.

3. Natural Perfume– we’ll get into the discussion of conventional perfume another day, but let’s just say you are far better off sticking to this natural version.

4. Face refresher/Make-up setter – Spray this on your face when you’re at your 3:00 PM slump…it works.

These are just a few of the many ways you can use rosewater. Now that I’ve hacked a super easy and cheap version for you, I challenge you to go out and experiment! But if you air on the side of caution, try my DIY Rosewater Face Toner. I promise you will be in love (roses included).


How To Make Rosewater + DIY Rosewater Face Toner

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 1.5 litres 1x


For the Homemade Rosewater:

  • Organic Roses (as many as you like-I used 7 stems)
  • Distilled water (enough to cover the rose petals- I used about 1.5 litres)

For the Homemade Rosewater Face Toner:


For the Homemade Rosewater:

  1. Remove petals from stems and run them under luke-warm water to remove any leftover residue.
  2. Add petals to a large pot and top with enough distilled water to just cover (no more or you’ll dilute your rosewater).
  3. over medium-low heat bring the water to a simmer and cover.
  4. Let simmer for 20-30 minutes or until petals have lost their color and are a pale pink.
  5. Strain the mixture to separate the petals from the water.
  6. Discard petals and place water in a glass jar to store.

For the Homemade Rosewater Face Toner:

  1. Combine all ingredients in spray bottle and shake.
  2. To apply: spray directly on face or spray a cotton pad and wipe face to remove any residue.

*Note: Using 7 stems makes around 1.5 litres of rosewater. This seems like a lot but it keeps for a long time in the fridge. Just store in a sealed, glass container until ready to use.

        2-3 months when kept in cool dry dark place between use. Using only for yourself I would say only make 4oz at a time.
        Also, for a zing I add half distilled water and half seltzer!

        Im pretty sure you are supposed to put on the lid of the pot upside down and put a glass jar in the middle of the petals boiling to collect the evaporating water. I think it’s the actual rose water and the water from the petals is rose tea

    I can’t wait to make this! Can you tell me though….does the rosewater need to be diluted to make a suitable toner, or can it be used full-strength? I wasn’t planning on diluting because my skin needs serious help, but I don’t want to do more harm than good if it’s too strong! Thanks!

      I love this idea. Just tried it and the water turned green almost within 5 minutes of it being on the hob! I had realised I forgot to wash the petals, so I have just tried again, however I put them on for a quicker time and now the water is brown almost like tea!! Is this still usable & safe to use on my face?

    Okay, so I know this post is not recent, but I thought I’d leave this comment for you anyway. I know a man who makes jams and such from locally sourced ingredients to sell at the farmers market, and he makes an amazing jelly with pomegranate and rosewater. It was the first of his I tried, and though I have at least five different spreads of his in my refrigerator pretty much always, it is still my favorite. It’s delicious! And your video is great :> thanks for the excellent instruction.

        I think she meant freezing the made up rose water? But I guess you could try and freeze the petals but it would need to be airtight wih the air pressed out of the bag to stay fresh or suspended in water. Otherwise the petals would quickly get freezer burn as they are so thin. I think this is why people dry them. But freezing the rosewater sounds like a good idea.

      Yes you can use dry, but let them soak to absorb water 30 minutes or so before you cook. You use less than fresh because fresh are 80% water.
      If you put this in a cool dry dark place between using it, like I keep my house at 70%, my 4oz will last 2-3 months, about the same in the fridge because it is moist.

      Hi Zainab, I n reply to your question regarding rosewater being related to your pimples, I;m not a specialist, but I do know, that anything that acts as an astringent, or closes pores, as does Rosewater, it can cause pimples, because everyone’s skin type is different, but all needs to breath, so if you have oily skin, some astringent is good, but not too strong, if you have dry skin, and use a toner or astringent, your pores are already tight, so you would be trapping oils in, if that be the case, you might want to dilute the rosewater more, or mix it with a moisturizer, and use it more like a creme. I know this area,from experience, because I have combo skin, and my daughter has very dry skin. You can also get little white pimples from being irritated, same thing applies. I hope this helps !

    Hi, Great Video and information. I would like to point out, however, it looks like you are using an aluminum pot to make the rose water in. When Aluminum pots release aluminum into the contents of the pot during the cooking process. So, rose water made in an aluminum pot will have traces of aluminum in it, which is bad for your body and is known to contribute significantly to the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.
    It is best to use a stainless steel pot to cook anything you are making to put on your skin. Cheers,

    I made this and my water doesn’t smell like roses at all. I’m not sure what the issue is or what happened. I used a bouquet of yellow and pinkish lavender roses not red, but they were very fragrant. The water kind of smells like diluted tomato water and a bit earthy. Can anyone help?

    Rose water has many functions for face. One of its functions is treating facial skin. Rose water can be used as toner. I was greatly helped by this post, because I usually bought rose water and now I can make it by myself at home. Thank you!

    I have an old Shaker recipe book that uses rose water in apple pie filling instead of lemon juice or vinegar, (which is usually there to keep the apples bright/not brown). It gives it a terrific flavor and it’s a great recipe. I’d post it but I don’t know where I put that book for now!!

    My rose water has some debris in it. It’s been about 3 weeks give or take that i’ve had it. I’ve put it in the fridge but i mostly keep it outside. It still SMELLS like roses but what are those debris particles floating about it. Do you have any clue? I can’t find it anywhere online! D:

      Most likely pollen particles, straining through a cheese cloth should fix that. It will smell like roses all the way up until the day it’s not good anymore. It won’t smell bad per se, but it won’t smell like a rose either. The rose itself is a mild anti-biotic FYI. 😉 <3

        I should say, it won’t smell bad at first, but right away you will notice the rose smell is weak or gone. Then I assume it must get to bad smell at some point. I never kept a jar past no smell point myself. I have had one jar, but I made it thick and for a muscle salve, so I kept the petals stems and leafs soaking intentionally. It never actually made it to the salve, however, after straining it, I did use it periodically with a face mask, and that jar lasted on the bathroom shelf non the less, in a conservative estimate, a good year or more. Im thinking about 1 1/2yr. I actually lost track. Then one day the smell was gone, so I just left it alone. Within a week from there I could see mold, so I just threw it away – jar and all.

      It’s a great idea actually. This makes the best toner. White or yellow roses would probably work best there, Red for cooking, wine, or drinking water. Use a combination of them all for healing salves. Unless you happen to come across an extra smelly yellow one, then that’s the one to use for any of the things you can do with a rose.

      You can add a 1-2 Tbs of vodka depending on the amount you are making -About a tsp for every 12 oz (0.45 kg).- while you are simmering the rose water. Right around 10 minutes before you are done simmering it, or after 7-10 minutes of stove time. Don’t over boil as the roses will lose their effectiveness. Simmer until the smell of the vodka is gone. I say vodka because regular isopropyl alcohol will just strip the roses of their flavor and smell. I use vodka (just the cheapest bottom shelf is perfect actually) because, one it tends to bring out the flavor just a bit more than without it, and two, it kills any germs that may have slipped into your water/jar and that straight boiling can sometimes miss. Its clear, strong and flavorless and yet while remaining effective it’s not so strong as to change the properties of the flower itself. Also, roses are a natural, but mild anti-biotic and astringent so it may be that your container had contaminates in it. Its always good practice for any DIY projects such as this to boil all your containers including lids and any gaskets or sprayers for fifteen minutes, of course after you’ve washed them (even if you just took them out of the dishwasher), and then leave on a freshly laundered towel to dry. Be careful not to burn yourself or drop and break any glass. They will be hot even if the water seems to have cooled off (you shouldn’t leave them in there after you’ve boiled them for that long anyway). Sometimes there are even little pockets of near boiling water in the crevices of your containers. I learned from personal experience. Nice zen interruption if anything. Use good gripping tongs or a thick BBQ skewer that you can stick in the opening to lift the container out of the hot water easily and safely. When the water cools it can collect new germs fairly soon as lukewarm is a haven for those things. So if you don’t remove them to dry fairly quickly you might want to reboil them for another fifteen minutes. If you do make your rose water the way I have defined, your rose water can last airtight shelved for a good couple years. Once opened one should refrigerate the capped or otherwise in closed rosewater for up to 12-16 wk’s. Or 3-4 months If you don’t have the time space or capacity for all of that, and your sill receiving mold then perhaps you missed something like rinsing the petals or maybe its just collected pollen. If you don’t completely sterilize it’s absolutely imperative to refrigerate the rose water to 40deg F. or below when you are not using it.

    I used this recipe but I heated the water and rose petals on the stove to boiling, then simmered for 20 min. Then I strained and sealed in hot jars, like with canning any other type of thing. The color turned out to be a bold red. Lovely! I anticipate that this process would aid in a long shelf life.

      Yes, you can drink this rosewater. Better yet half dilute it with water and pour into ice cube tray and use as ice cubes. Roses are not harmful or poison for human consumption. Allergies might be something to look out for however. Only the thorns contain some irritating properties like any thorn on any plant. Some roses, in fact are sweet due to their natural sugars, hence there wonderful smell. You can eat the petals. Here is a website I just found you might like, it has a few recipes about cooking with roses as a flavor. From desert to drinks, and even one with sea bass. There is a plethora of them out there.

    You may want to update this post to better serve your readers. Skin is waterproof, we do not absorb water through our skin, therefor it’s impossible for us to receive the benefits of water through our skin. The only way to receive the benefits of water is to drink it. But please do not take my word for it, conduct your own research to come to a conclusion on your own. Other than that, this post is great and roses really are wonderful for the skin! It’s nice to see people embracing healthier and natural alternatives to the mainstream products full of junk.

    -As it’s coming to autumn/winter, our garden roses are starting to wither away, can we use culinary rose buds instead?
    -can this be mixed with aloe vera gel?
