I had a bouquet of roses just sitting around, no reason, slowly dying on my kitchen table, so I decided to do something with them.
We tried making rose water the day after my wedding, since we had so many roses to work with, but there was so much going on and so many people to see that we ended up leaving it on the stove too long and it was not a good situation.
For this batch, I used 3 cups of water with the petals from 12 red roses, and put them on to simmer for about half an hour.
Apparently there are lots of things you can do with it, I just plan on pouring it into a bubble bath. It’s a gorgeous colour, and it smells amazing.
