How to Make Rose Water

Hi everyone! Since the roses are in full bloom now, I’d thought I would make this simple tutorial on how to make rose water. Roses are great for many different kinds of magic, but since they’re either expensive or unavailable during certain times of the year, their water is great substitute, and can be used for many things on its own!

What you’ll need:

3 rose heads (the flower part, not the stem)

Approximately 6-8 cups of water

A big pot (with a lid)

Step 1:

Fill your pot with the water and strip all of your rose heads of petals. If you want your water to be more potent, throw in the petal-less head in, too.

Step 2:

Simmer (not boil) your water with the roses in it and the lid on. Keep a close eye on it; you’ll want to remove the pot from the heat when the rose petals lose their color. This can take 10-20 minutes depending on your stove. You don’t want to let the petals heat for too long, or they’ll disintegrate.

Step 3:

Strain your water thoroughly, making sure to press the petals of any excess water. After this, you can bottle your newly made rose water! It can keep indefinitely, so I recommend making big batches that’ll last you until the next rose harvest.

그대의 창조와 삶의 끝에 함께 하길
그대의 자리가 어딜지라도 관대하리
결국 시련의 끝에 만개하리
시작은 미약할지언정 끝은 창대하리

Will be together with you at your creation and at the end of your life
Wherever you are, will welcome you
In the end, at the end of adversity, will be in full bloom
Though the start may be humble, the end will be prosperous

(T/N: This is a part of the lyrics to Track 10 “so far away” Feat. 수란 (SURAN) on Suga’s mixtape. The register (formality) Suga uses here is very high (it’s very formal) and the grammatical structure is in an older form that is used in serious, religious, etc. situations (example: the Korean Bible is written in this form and prayers are said in this form).

The form is difficult to explain in English, but it’s closest to the meaning of “will do ___”. It’s like part prayer, part request, part willing something to happen. It doesn’t have a specific speaker, which makes whatever Suga is saying something that he wishes/wills for everyone and not only himself.
(example: “In the end, at the end of adversity, will be in full bloom”
Explicit pronoun does not exist, so the sentence contains multiple meanings: “I will be in full bloom,” “You will be in full bloom,” “We will be in full bloom,” etc.))

(T/N: Repeat of Suga’s previous tweet.  This is a part of the lyrics to Track 10 “so far away” Feat. 수란 (SURAN) on Suga’s mixtape.

JUIY J seems to be a play on “Agust D”; “July J” where “J” is for “Jungkook”. This is a speculation and is not confirmed!

Song playing in the background is Track 10 “so far away” (Feat. 수란 (SURAN)) from Suga’s mixtape)
