Using DIY rosewater body wash as a part of your skincare ritual is a wonderful way to soothe and calm the skin. Rose water is cooling in nature and helps to minimize the appearance of scars, reduce inflammation, and also balances the pH of the skin. This DIY body wash is loaded with antioxidants which help to boost skin regeneration and strengthen the cells.
Ingredients and Materials Needed
A pot with a lid
A container to put your rosewater in
Aloe vera gel
Put some distilled water into a pot and place some rose petals inside the distilled water just enough so that the water barely covers the rose petal.
Now put your flame on a low heat. It has to be low this is very important you don’t want them to boil.
Once your flame is on low, grab the lid of your pot and place it on top and let it sit for about 15 to 30 minutes until the roses start to lose their color.
Once they lose their color, then go ahead and strain the roses out of the water. You can also filter the rose water through an unbleached coffee filter if you don’t want any particles from the rose petals in there but make sure you do this before you add any other ingredients to it.
At this point while it is still warm there are three things you can add to it; you can add glycerin or a little bit of aloe vera gel or a little bit of almond oil. Glycerin is a humectant which helps to retain moisture in the skin. You can also add a few drops of skin oil like almond oil; almond oil has a beautiful affinity with roses. You could also add a few drops of aloe vera gel. You can add all three of these or just one.
Add a quarter teaspoon of glycerin, four drops of almond oil, and a quarter teaspoon of aloe vera gel.
It is great to use small containers because then you can use it up in a faster amount of time and it will last longer.
This DIY rosewater body wash does not have a preservative in it so they need to be kept in the fridge and ideally use within a week. Rosewater is excellent for the skin, it helps to moisturize and soothe the skin.
