When making rose water using fresh roses, all you’re going to be using is the petals. Put the rose petals in a small sauce pan and discard the stem and leaves.
Add the water to the pot. You should add just enough water to cover the petals. Cover the pot with a lid and over low-medium heat bring the water to boil. Once the water is boiling, lower the heat and let it simmer for about 20-30 minutes or until the petals have lost all their color.
