Make your own
First, you need to make yourself a GATHER: A large pot A ceramic bowl A brick or flat stone A metal bowl or rounded pot cover Water Ice
Place bowl on top of flat stone
Place in pot.
Sprinkle fresh and most importantly, unsprayed rose flowers around the stone or brick at the bottom of the pot. Use enough flowers to reach the top of the stone, then cover with water.
Put 2 or so trays of ice into a metal bowl or inverted rounded pot lid and place on top of pot. Heat on low for about 20 minutes or until most of the water is in the bowl. The magic happens as the rose infused water heats and begins to evaporate, it will rise and hit the cool lid above. As the condensation clusters, it will fall to the bowl below giving you lovely rose water.
Rose water can be used for both culinary and cosmetic uses. Store in the refrigerator and smell often. It will make you happy.
