  1. For the rosewater: Place the rose petals in a medium saucepan and cover with distilled water. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat. Take care not to boil the mixture. Cover and let simmer for 30 minutes or so, then strain the mixture into a glass jar. Refrigerate.
  2. For the rosewater face mist: Fill the glass jars one-fourth of the way with distilled water and then top with rosewater. Add Frankincense oil to the jars and shake to mix. Spritz away!
  3. For the bath salts: In a medium glass bowl mix the Epsom salt, lavender oil and peppermint oil. Using gloved hands, mix the oil into the salts by rubbing it between your fingers. Mix in remaining ingredients and place in a large Mason jar.
