Refreshing Rose Water Face Mist DIY Recipe! #NielsenMassey #Giveaway


When you hear the company Nielsen Massey, you most likely think of baking. Who hasn't used their vanillas or other flavor extracts at some point making cookies, cakes or other goodies? Our family uses their vanilla, almond and peppermint extracts all the time. However, we recently received a new (to us) product that you may not automatically think of baking with. Yes, Nielsen Massey also offers Rose Water, to be used in various dishes including pastries, cookies, and Middle Eastern and Indian cuisine. We actually used this in two different ways - and enjoyed both - without even getting into baking with it. I did find an almond baklava recipe that incorporates rose water that sounds absolutely yummy, so that's on our to-try list as well!


My first experiment with rose water was to make a face mist. Rose water facial mists are so handy especially during the summer. Last week my sisters and I attended an outdoor Gospel concert, and this would have come in handy there. Even in Indiana, the heat was sweltering and very humid. A splash of rose water every once in a while would have been so cooling and refreshing! This is so easy to make, and I already have requests to make at least two other people their own batch. So without further ado, here is a simple three-ingredient recipe to make your own rose water face mist to help you cool off this summer!

Ingredients:
1/2 tablespoon Jojoba Oil (or almond oil)
1 teaspoon Rose Water
Water



Combine rose water and jojoba oil in a 2-ounce spray bottle, fill the rest of the way with water. Shake well and mist! Obviously the oil and water will separate, simply shake before each use. Technically the oil is optional, but I like the extra moisturizing it provides.


In case you're wondering what my other experiment with rose water was, I brewed up a cup of lemon tea and added a couple drops of rose water before drinking. It tasted delicious, and the smell is perfectly wonderful. I honestly wasn't sure it would be, but it has a similar flavor to Earl Grey tea, which I love. This will be the perfect winding-down evening beverage. I imagine it probably tastes good iced too, so I'll be trying that in the next few days.


Be sure to check out Nielsen Massey and their great line of vanillas and flavors for all your baking (and skin care!) needs!

One of our readers will receive a bottle of Rose Water from Nielsen Massey!!
