The process seemed rather easy.  The most important thins was where one sourced the blooms from.  Organically cultivated roses are the safest choice for obvious reasons.  Another was the flower variety.  The most commonly variety for rose water and rose oil is the Rosa damascena to which the Indian gulab belongs.  There are two ways to making rose water.  One in which the water is simmered for 20 minutes until the petals lose their colour.  Once the liquid cooled,the petals are strained.  Nothing prepared me for the intense colour.  The water turns deep bright pink.
