Learn all of the benefits of Rose Water, including a step-by-step tutorial on how to make rosewater! Not only will you learn how to make homemade rose water, but you’ll get a DIY Rosewater Face Toner recipe 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.

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 to make rosewater and how I like to use it in my skincare routine.


What is Rose Water + 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. Especially 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 rose water?

  • 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 Rose Water

Now for some of the ways I like to use this homemade 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 Rose Water Face Toner. I promise you will be in love (roses included).

  • Author: Davida Lederle
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 25 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 1.5 litres 1x
  • Category: Skincare
  • Method: Boil



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.

And there’s competitions. There’s a great amount of competition. So that normally brings out the best.”

    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!!

    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!

    You’ll be successful faster than you ever though was even possible.

    Is a brand new arbitrage formula – very few people know about it and even less are actually using it.
    We focus on an overlooked area when it comes to arbitrage – and it’s pretty crazy because EVERYONE wants these services.
