Rosewater & Glycerine Spray1

Rosewater and glycerine spray is a wonderful light moisturiser – you can spray it on your hair, your face and even all over your body, every day, to refresh and rehydrate.  It also works great as a makeup setting spray or as a skin soothing spray.

You’ll love that this spray is simple to make and needs very few ingredients; yet it’s packed full of nourishing goodness. And because of its unique balancing effects, it works well for all skin and hair types.

Highly nourishing and soothing, rosewater is able to penetrate deep down your skin and energise every cell, bringing balance to the skin. It’s also mildly astringent effect, so it makes a great skin toner, keeping your pores clean and clear. Due to its regenerating qualities, it works as a general skin tonic and helps to lighten scars and impart a smooth, radiant complexion.

Rosewater is great for your hair too. It replenishes lost moisture and makes hair more manageable, smoother, shiner and healthier. Plus, the natural anti-inflammatory properties of rosewater can help reduce dandruff and its stimulating properties increases scalp circulation and promotes hair growth.


Glycerin is a natural humectant, which means it helps your skin attract moisture from the air and stay hydrated. This quality also makes it very beneficial for dry, brittle hair and naturally curly hair. The best thing about glycerin is that it moisturises the skin/hair without making it oily.

DIY Rosewater & Glycerin Spray

To make this spray you will need:

Simply pour all the ingredients in a spray bottle (I prefer glass bottles). Shake well before use.

* You can replace almond oil with any other lighter oils such as argan, grapeseed , jojoba, and sunflower oil.

Tip: add more/ less oil or glycerin depending on how light or rich you want your mist to be.

How to Use Rosewater & Glycerin Spray

Rosewater & Glycerin as a Hair Spritz

Use the rosewater and glycerin spray to moisturise your hair. This all natural spray tames fly-aways and makes hair smoother, silkier and shinier. It also aids in detangling and will leave your hair looking and smelling lovely.

To use, Spray it on damp or dry hair, focusing on dry, frizzy areas. You can also spray it on your scalp to moisturise and soothe itchy areas.

Rosewater & Glycerin as a Facial Toner and Tonic

Rosewater & glycerine works as a fantastic toner, helping to tighten pores, balancing your skin and softening fine lines. It also nourishes, hydrates, and protects the facial skin and keeps you fresh and glowing all day long.

After cleansing, spray all over your face and neck, and leave on. Follow up with a natural serum or day cream. I like to use it with a few drops of watermelon seeds oil, which sinks in quickly and makes my skin so soft and supple.

More benefits: Rosewater is also said to reduce skin allergies and inflammations, and diminish the redness caused by large capillaries.

Rosewater & Glycerin as a Body Mist

You can use this spray in place of your regular lotion or along with it for extra moisturisation.

Use it right out of the shower whilst still damp; spray all over from head to toe to keep your body hydrated all day long.

Before and/or After Applying Make up

You can also use this spray to prime and as a finishing spray when done with makeup. Spray a little bit after you have finished doing your makeup and it will set it into place. It is the best thing to use if you feel that your foundation is a bit powdery or too matte, it will give you a very nice healthy and dewy finish.

Buying tip: Always buy pure rosewater which is free from additives or preservatives. (These are good ones). And when buying glycerine, opt for vegetable glycerin as opposed to synthetic one.

Making your own rosewater: If you got some fragrant roses blooming into your garden then you can make your own rosewater. Take 1 cup rose petals and 2 cups water. Place both in a pot and bring to a boil, then simmer on a low flame for 10 minutes or until rose petals lose their colour. Then strain immediately. Let cool and fill it up in a glass bottle or jar and keep refrigerated. 

Happy Spritzing!
