How to Make Your Own Organic Flower Water

 

As you may have probably noticed, I am a huge fan of natural living, clean eating, and all kinds of eco-friendly stuff.

I have been avoiding using harsh cosmetics for quite some time and I am always on the lookout for any toxin-free brands or DIY beauty recipes.

And today’s post will be focused on how to make your very own flower water. I am using this product mainly as a face toner and as a compound for a homemade face crème or a lotion.

I had some extra rose petals and I was wondering what to do with them. You probably don’t know this, but Bulgaria is famous for its roses – we have over 1200 square miles land planted with Damascus roses and we produce about half of the rose oil worldwide (yup – half!).

Needless to say, rose petals are easy to be found here, especially in The Rose Valley where I live (lucky me!).

Sadly, you can’t make essential oils at home, but preparing flower water is totally doable! If you have some extra time and some pretty aromatic petals, this DIY project is for you!

Here is how to do it!

I will be using rose flowers but this could be done with almost every other aromatic plant.

First, remove the petals (if possible). If you are using lavender, for example, this step is not necessary.

Secondly, transfer the flowers into a metal pot with some water and start heating them at medium temperature.

Third, place a cup (preferably ceramic or glass) at the center of the pot.

Next, place the lid upside down and cover the pot so that the handle is facing directly at the cup.

Now, once the water starts to simmer, place several ice cubes at the top of the lid. The decreased temperature will cause the steam to condense straight into the cup and form our flower water.

As the flower water starts to gather, transfer it frequently into a glass jar with a tight lid. Otherwise, the high temperature in the pot will cause it to evaporate once again.

Continue adding more ice cubes once the old ones are fully melted.

When you feel the petals are overcooked and the smell is deteriorating, stop the process, and cool down the gathered flower water.
