Naturally, rosewater makes for a great fragrance due its natural, light scent. All you need to do is purchase rosewater, and combine it with a few drops of rose oil in a spray bottle, with a teeny bit of an emulsifier like vodka. If you'd rather not use alcohol, just combine rosewater and rose oil, and shake the bottle well before using. Spray away, and your skin will thank you for the glow this gives, as will your senses, for the beautiful scent it leaves.
