I was chatting with a woman who’s 75 years old but looks 50, so I decided to ask her what her secret is to keeping her skin young and hydrated. Any guesses as to what it might be?
She uses rose water! Ever heard of it? She says this inexpensive little ingredient has rejuvenated her skin for over 35 years!
Rose water is a skin care product that’s been around for a long time. Cleopatra used it, Shakespeare wrote about it, and over time it’s become an essential product in a woman’s routine. Rose water may be an old trick, but even compared to modern cosmetic products, it still proves to be super efficient.
The young people of today probably don’t know it, but rose water and rice powder were beauty products that every woman had at home. The women of that time may not have used all the products we’ve today, such as serums, tonics, facial oils, masks and creams, but rose water was the one product that wasn’t missing in any household.
And if you ask me, they were right, because rose water is an ingredient that improves the skin in many ways: it moisturizes, cleanses, soothes and purifies. Its cosmetic properties are recognized and appreciated, which is why it’s still used in many cosmetics today.

Those are great benefits, right? But you’re probably wondering: how do you make rose water?
Put 1 cup of washed and dried rose petals in a glass bowl. Add 2 cups of boiling water and cover it. Let it stand for 30 minutes. Then use a tea towel as a strainer, strain it and put the water in a sterilized container.. Let it cool and store it in the refrigerator until you use it.
It’s important to make sure that the roses are organically grown. Usually these flowers are treated with chemicals to make them last longer, which can affect their properties. You can use this recipe as a natural tonic.
