    •  The Organic Rose Water Recipe: 

      All you need is 4-5 blossoms of fragrant organic roses, water and some ice cubes.Remove the rose blossoms from the steps and carefully rinse them to get rid of any dust or little critters. Put a bowl at the center of an empty saucepan, then add the rose petals around the bowl. 

      • Note: make sure there are no petals in the bowl as this is where the rose water will collect. 

      • Add water (enough to cover the petals) and bring the heat up to make it simmer. Put the cover on, upside down.
      • The cover will help catch the rose water vapour for this distilling method.
      • Add ice to the top of the saucepan cover.As soon as the ice melts, add more ice cubes. This helps with the condensation of the evaporated rose water. 
      • Keep repeating this step.
      • In about 30 minutes, the rose water will be ready. It should have condensed into the bottle in the middle of the saucepan.Carefully remove the bowl as it is hot. Pour the rose water in a clean glass container. Store in a cool dry place (I store mine in the fridge for up to 3-4 months).
