DIY Rose Water Facial. Gather all of the petals from approx 12 roses, no need to stems or leave. Put in pot with just enough water to cover petals( about 3cups). Let simmer for 15+mins until petals lose their color. Remove petals from water and pour the now rose water into ice cube trays. When your face needs a pick me up, pop one out of the freezer and rub all over face. And that's all there's to it. Your skin will feel fresh and extra soft.
