Rose Water

Inspired by Princess Nokia

Why rose water?

Rose water is used as a toner, controlling excess oils and aiding in cleaning out pores with its antibacterial properties. It helps to control fine lines and has a relaxing aroma. It great to wake up and spritz some on your face.

Princess Nokia, a rapper from Harlem, a feminist, and all around beautiful person, includes making rose water into her weekly routine as a spiritual task. She does it because peeling the flower makes her feel like a beautiful woman because the flower carries the essence of life and can help make you feel beautiful in your natural state. The biggest thing is the intention behind the creation of rose water. Yeah, you can buy it in the store, but you can never find rose water with the intention of care and beauty behind it in the store.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 or 2 roses
  • Boiling water
  • Heat proof bowl
  • Two tablespoons of vodka
  • Spray bottle


To make rose water, you peel a flower into a heat proof bowl, tear up the petals, and steep them (covered) in about 1-1.5 cups of hot water for at least 15 minutes. After this, you can add a capful of plain vodka to help it last longer and store it in a spray bottle.
