MAKING OF ROSE WATER:
Have you heard of ROSE WATER YET?! Whoa it is my new obsession this summer! It tastes good and has amazing health benefits. I've started drinking rose water on it's own everyday, which made me learn it's a great addition to mocktails as well! It's really simple to make, with just boiling water and rose. In all honesty, I fill up a mason jar and a handful of Rose Buds from Rose Dose and leave it in the fridge for a few 1-2 days, depending on how strong of a rose taste I want. I am a huge fan of the Rose Dose -read why below!
