This is an inexpensive, effective and easy recipe for rose water toner. It is all-natural and free from alcohol, preservatives or artificial ingredients. I absolutely love the amazing, sweet floral  ‘perfume’ scent!

A great property I love about rose water toner is that it seems to naturally balance our skin’s oil production. I have combination, acne-prone skin and sensitive skin (possibly the worst combination out there). Whenever my face is oily during the day, I spray this mist, which I find more effective in curbing excess oil than blotting. It also helps to reduce redness on my skin. Rose water toner is known for its hydrating and moisturising properties when applied to dry skin.

DIY Rose Water Toner

  • Properties: balances skin’s sebum production; refreshing, cooling and soothing; revives tired skin; gentle enough to suit most sensitive skin-types; softens and smoothens skin; shrinks pore size and reduces redness;
  • Tip: Do a skin patch test on a small area on your skin, before trying out any new product.
  • Suitable for: All skin types.
  • Frequency: Can be used daily.


  • As a facial toner: At night, after cleansing, soak cotton pad with rose water toner. Apply in upwards strokes on face and neck.
  • As a facial mist: Spray all over face and neck. Perfect as a pick-me-up freshener throughout the day. When the mist dries, it gives the face a dewy glow. Can also be used to prep the skin before applying make-up.
  • Can also be used as an after-shower body mist, after-shave or hair mist (spray lightly on dry hair-ends).

    hi, I bought a bottle of pure rose water. Do I need to add water or i will just it as it is? If i need to add water, what will be the ratio of water and rosewater? thanks

      I believe you can use the rose water straight from the bottle. This is recipe for making it from scratch :)

    May I know if it is okay to carry around in small portion without storing in fridge?


    • wiffy replied: — July 5th, 2013 @ 2:44 pm

      yup, that is what I do, carry a small portion when I am out, and refrigerate the bottle when I’m home.

    Hello. Can I use either white or red rose buds too???


    • wiffy replied: — April 20th, 2014 @ 10:56 pm

      I am using dried pink rose buds (the ones for brewing tea). I’m not very sure about using fresh white or red rose buds.

    So this rose water can only be kept for a week? Is there any way to preserve this for a longer time?

      When stored in a fridge, I guess you can gauge it day by day to see how fresh it keeps.
