Romans used to add rose petals to their bath to perfume the water. Have you ever sprinkled rose petals into your bath? It seems romantic, like something you may see in the movies but maybe a little messy in real life.
Instead of rose petals, try rose water. Rose water comes from distilled rose petals and carries with it the sweet floral aroma. In this foaming body wash recipe we are using rose water.
