Gather about 2 lbs. of scented petals before they fall.
The fresher the better. The actual ratio of Roses to water depends on the color
and fragrance desired.
You can start with about 2 cups of rose petals firmly packed to a liter of water.

Place in an enamel saucepan or preferably earthenware pan. Cover wih cold soft water (preferably rainwater).
Bring almost to a boil.
Let cool. Strain. Be careful not to scorch.

Red Roses cause the water to turn a pale pink. Other color roses turn the water a brownish yellow muddy color.
The water will remain scented for a good two days.
Refrigerated it lasts longer.
