Ingredients
2-3 Quarts fresh Roses or Rose petals  (grown without pesticides!!)
A Brick
Heat-safe stainless steel or glass quartz bowl
Fresh filtered Water
Ice cubes or crushed Ice
1.In center of a large pot with an inverted lid (a rounded lid), place a fire brick. On top of the brick place the bowl. Put the Roses in the pot: add enough flowers to reach the top of the brick. Pour in just enough water to cover the Roses. The water should be just above the brick.
2. Place the lid upside down on the pot. Turn n the stove and bring the water to a rolling boil, toss two or three trays of ice cubes or bagged ice on top of the lid.
3.You have now created your a home still. As the water boils the steam rises, hits the top of the cold lid, and condenses. As it condenses it flows to the center of the lid and drops into the bowl. Every 20 minutes, quickly life the lid to check how much is collected in the bowl. It is time to stop when you have between a pint and a quart of water that smells and tastes strongly like Roses.
