Make Your Own Rose Water Body Spray


Women around the world have used rose water as part of their skin care regime for centuries! Even Cleopatra is said to have added rose petals to her bath! While it may have lost some of its’ allure over the last few decades, in recent years it has been enjoying a surge in popularity! More and more beauty products on store shelves have rose water as an ingredient which isn’t surprising considering all the benefits this centuries-old skin remedy has to offer!

  • Rose water’s unique properties make it ideal for every skin type. It can help sooth and cool sensitive and irritated skin, balance and cleanse oily skin, rejuvenate, soften and tone mature skin, revitalize and add beautiful glow to the normal skin.
  • Rose water is filled with anti-oxidants and various vitamins, therefore, it can help prevent the signs of aging and nourish the skin.
  • Rose water also has natural antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. Rose water even balances the skin’s PH levels and tightens pores making them appear smaller

Think C A L M when you use rose water because that’s what rose water does best, it calms inflammation, mood, skin tone and even puffy eyelids while it heals and moisturizes.

My sister Rebecca decided to make a good thing even better by blending rose water with essential oils and came up with an “holistic cocktail” of sorts to improve skin, mood, and overall health. You can make your own rose water by following instructions here, or you can make it easy on yourself and buy a bottle. Straight from the bottle, rose water is a fantastic moisturizer, linen spray, facial toner, and makeup remover. It’s also used in cooking, including many middle eastern and southeast asian drinks and foods. The possibilities are endless!

Add your choice of EOs to bottle and top the bottle with rose water. This will make 1 ounce of spray. If you like how it smells and feels on your hair and skin, you can make more and just use the same ratios. :-)

  • I bought some rose water spray and it’s refreshing on my skin but does nothing for my frizzy hair. With this hot weather we’re having, I’m always spritzing my face. I’ve just about given up on the hair!

  • This is very similar to a spray I use. Just add some magnesium oil for a health boosting spray. Magnesium is best when absorbed through the skin. (If you take too much orally it works like a strong laxative.) I never thought about adding EO’s to my mix. Thanks for the great idea!

  • I’ll definitely be trying this, I love rose water! I’m confused about one thing. If you mix water plus rose essential oil, wouldn’t that make “rosewater”? Is there a reason to purchase the rose water already made?
    Btw, Mario Badescu makes a wonderful facial spray-rose water, and aloe based for a very reasonable price.

    • Great question I always wanted to know the answer if you mix water with rose essential oil will that make rose water hopefully we will get an answer

      • I don’t see why not! I would use distilled water, just to avoid any mold issues. Let me know how it goes :-)
