Growing up I remember my mom used to make rosewater and tell me to use it often so that my face looks supple and fresh. Its supposed to also soothe dry skin and since I love the smell of roses I was very happy to use rosewater. Mom also used it while making rice puddings. But that's an experiment that you'd like to try some other day.
Anyway, here is a quick tutorial at Lost and Fawned to make Rosewater.
