    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.
