Tips and Tricks
- Add a few drops of essential oil into the Rose Water Facial Mist to give it an added boost of fragrance. Examples of oils one can use are Rose, White Rose or Ylang Ylang oils.
- To give your DIY Rose Water Facial Mist a more rosier look, try adding a piece of Hibiscus flower in the warm water for about one minute or until the Rose Water takes on a slight rosy pink color.
- Rose water can last up to 6 months if stored in the fridge.
- When measuring the water to make the Rose Water Mist you will need to increase your water by two times in order to make your DIY Rose Water Facial Mist. For example, if your glass spray bottle is 8 ounces you with use 10 ounces of distilled water.
