Things You'll Need
1. Gather or buy approximately 12 roses that are in full bloom.
2. Trim the roses to remove the stems and leaves. If you bought the roses from a florist, rinse the petals thoroughly with cool water to remove any pesticides and chemicals.
3. Place the trimmed rose flowers in a large pot. Add enough water to cover the flowers then turn on the stove burner.
4. Heat the water and allow it to simmer gently for between 15 and 20 minutes. Test the rosewater as it's simmering; it's ready when the water smells strongly of roses.
5. Strain the rosewater into a large bowl and discard the flowers. Allow the rosewater to cool before using a funnel to transfer it into a clean, empty spray bottle.6. Store the rosewater in the refrigerator when you're not using it, to keep it chilled.
