A decoction of rose petals.

Arrange the petals on the bottom of the saucepan in 2-3 layers, fill them with water and bring to a boil, simmer for 5 to 7 minutes, covering with a lid. After the broth has cooled, strain it.

As in the second method, place the petals in the saucepan and fill them with water, but in this case, you still need to put a jar (the height of the edges should be 2-3 cm above the water level in the pan), cover the pan with the lid turned over. Wait for the water to boil and simmer for 1 hour. You need to put some ice on the lid. Water and ice will need to be added periodically. The steam will condense on the lid and drain into the jar and it will be the ready rosewater.

The product can be frozen and used as thermal water to give skin tone. Also, this procedure is well invigorating in the morning.
