  • 6-8 cups Fragrant, pesticide-free rose petals
  • Distilled water
  • Ice cubes


  • Remove the petals from your roses, separating them from the stem and shaking out any stamen that might have gotten caught up in the petals.
  • Place a brick, heavy bowl, or cup filled with kitchen weights in the bottom of your pan. The place a wide mouth bowl on top of the brick or weighted bowl.
  • Add the petal to the pot around the bowl. Then pour 6 cups of distilled water around the sides of the bowl and lightly submerge the flower petals.
  • Place the lid on top of the pot, upside down, and pile¬†a handful of ice cubes in the center of the upturned lid. Keep replenishing the ice as it melts.
  • Simmer on medium-low for 15-20 minutes until the petals begin to loose their color.
  • Remove the collection bowl from the pot with tongs and then, using a funnel or measuring cup, pour the collected rosewater into a jar with a lid.
