Facial Steam #1 Rose Petal Steam for Normal Skin

ROSE PETAL STEAM for Normal Skin
source: Secrets of the Spas


1 cup fresh rose petals
1 gallon almost boiling water


Put fresh rose petals in a large bowl and pour almost boiling waterover them. Place towel over head and lean face over bowl, about 12 inches away, to absorb steam and vapors. keep breathing in vapors for 15 minutes. ently pat dry.

Once you're done with the steam, you can make rosewater. First, strain the steam liquid and save the petals and the water separately. Pour water into a medium saucepan and simmer for about 30 minutes, or until there is approximately one cup of liquid left.
Once reduced, pour it over the saved petals and steep for another 20 minutes. Strain the liquid again. Discard petals and pour liquid into glass bottle and allow to cool..
You have just made rose water!
