  • A large pot with a tight-fitting lid
  • A heat-resistant bowl (preferably stainless steel or glass) that fits inside the pot
  • A brick or small heatproof item to place under the bowl
  • A heatproof lid or a small dish that fits on top of the bowl
  • Cheesecloth or a fine sieve
  • A jar or bottle for storing the rose water


  1. Rinse the rose petals under cold water to remove any dirt or debris.
  2. In the pot, place the brick or heatproof item. Fill the pot with enough distilled water to cover the brick or item.
  3. Place the heat-resistant bowl on top of the brick or item in the pot. Make sure the bowl does not touch the water.
  4. Put the rose petals into the bowl, and then fill the bowl with distilled water until the petals are submerged.
  5. Place the pot on the stove and cover it with the lid. Turn the heat to low or medium-low.
  6. Allow the water to simmer gently. Check on the water level every 20-30 minutes, and add more distilled water if necessary.
  7. After 2-3 hours of simmering, the rose petals should have lost their color, and the water should have a pinkish hue. Turn off the heat and let the water cool completely.
  8. Strain the liquid through a fine sieve or cheesecloth into a clean jar or bottle. Store the rose water in the refrigerator for up to one week.

Note: If you want a more concentrated rose water, you can let the liquid cool completely, then return it to the stove and simmer again until the liquid is reduced by half.
