Clean your rose petals thoroughly with water to remove any dirt or pesticide residue.
Put the rose petals in a pan with distilled water on low heat, left uncovered. Pour enough water to barely submerge the rose petals. Don’t boil the petals!
Strain the petals from the water with a colander or sieve. Once you’ve strained your rosewater, transfer it to a small vial or spray bottle.

Another way to make rosewater is to put distilled water in a pot with a bowl placed in the middle. Surround the bowl with rose petals, submerged in water.
Cover the pot with a lid and place ice cubes on top of the lid while the water in the pot boils. Regularly remove the water that has melted on the lid to keep it from dipping.
