  • 1 bag fresh rose petals (pesticide free) or dried rose buds
  • water (enough to cover the petals or buds)


  • Place clean, pesticide-free, fresh rose petals (or dried petals) in a pot.
  • Pour enough boiling water to cover the petals. Cover pot with a lid. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
  • Place the cooled mixture in a bowl with a tight-fitting lid; refrigerate overnight to allow the flavor to develop.
  • Next day, strain and discard petals.
  • To store, pour rosewater into a jar with a lid; refrigerate. Leftover rosewater can be poured into ice cube trays and frozen. Once frozen, transfer cubes into a plastic bag.
  • When rose water is required for a recipe, simply defrost as many cubes as you’ll need.
