Quite simply, rose water is produced by steeping rose petals in water, which releases many of the active ingredients in these flowers. While rose water can also be produced through a steam distillation process in modern times, the production and use of rose water date back thousands of years. Back in the days, it was made in the most basic way – soaking rose petals in water for an extended period. This water distillation method would pull many of the active ingredients and aromatic compounds out of the flowers, infusing the water. Steam distillation processes do exist, but for natural at-home removal, there is a quicker method. Let’s take a look!
