According to the Natural Home Remedies website, rosewater offers a variety of health and skin care benefits, which is why many health and beauty products include it in their list of ingredients. It has a pleasant fragrance, which makes the antibacterial and antiseptic properties even more appealing and enjoyable. Rose-Works.com claims that it's easy to make. Keep leftover homemade rosewater in a sealed jar in the refrigerator to prevent it from spoiling. For all health issues, consult your doctor before self-treating.

Healing Sickness

If you have a mild sore throat, make a rosewater tea with rose petals. Pour approximately 150ml of boiling water into a cup with .5g of rose petals. Allow the petals to steep for approximately 30 minutes before drinking. If the flowers are close to producing seed, they provide high amounts of vitamin A, vitamin B3, vitamin C, vitamin D and vitamin E. They also have citric acid, bioflavonoids, zinc and tannins.



You may drink rose petal tea to help a variety of other illnesses. Some people claim to get relief from tension, ulcers, heart conditions, infection, diarrhea, indigestion and circulation problems. If your condition persists, talk to a medical professional.

After-Bath Splash

Rosewater is a pleasant finish to a bath or shower. Chop rose petals and rose hips. Place them in a container with distilled water for approximately 30 to 45 minutes. Strain with cheesecloth or a fine strainer. After your bath, splash this rosewater all over your body to relax with a pleasant scent.



According to the She Radiance website, rosewater can add a healthy glow to your skin, leaving it radiant and soft. Rosewater is mild and relaxing, so it can be used every day.

Skin Cleanser and Toner

You can use rosewater to make a healthy, all-natural skin cleanser and toner. Combine one cup of rosewater with 10 drops of rose essential oil for a skin cleanser that can help skin inflammation, lines and wrinkles. Apply the rose water and oil cleanser to your face or body, then rinse with clear, tepid water. Pat dry.



Combine a cup of rosewater with 3/4 cups of witch hazel and add eight drops of glycerin in a bottle. Place the cap on the bottle and shake until the solution is completely mixed. Apply to your skin with a cotton ball.

Moisturizer

Your skin will benefit from a moisturizer infused with rosewater. Combine a few drops of rosewater with your regular body lotion. Rosewater can be used on oily or dry skin, and it can help relieve dermatitis by maintaining your skin's pH balance. You can use it every day for an all-over glow.

Fragrance

Rosewater has a pleasant, all-natural scent. Combine 1/4 cup of rosewater with five drops of jasmine essential oil and mix it well. Store the mixture in a sealed dark glass bottle to keep it fresh. The scent is light, refreshing and invigorating.
