Add the rose petals to a small pot along with some water.
The petals will tend to float to the top. To make sure the water is saturated with the rose properties, make sure to stir continually.
Place the pot on the stove over low heat.
Continue to stir. I mix in the petals so that they are completely covered in the water.
When the water starts to create steam, cover the pot with a tight lid to prevent the oils from escaping.
After 20 minutes, strain the mixture through a fine sieve lined with cheesecloth or through a nut milk bag.
Add a lid to the rosewater and allow it to cool to room temperature.
Store the jar of rose water in the refrigerator, and use within 7 days.
