Rose extract can be made from any type of rose, however, old heritage roses and wild roses seem best for making this extract. Whichever you choose, be sure it hasn't been sprayed with chemicals or harmful pesticides. To make this extract, you'll need a large number of fragrant petals and alcohol. If you're intending to ingest the rose petal extract, use vodka in places of rubbing alcohol.
In a glass container, combine 1 part rose petals, and 4 parts of alcohol. Fill the rest of the container with water. Allow this to steep for about a week, take out some of the old petals and replace with new ones. The more you replace the petals, the more fragrant the extract will be. Finally, strain the mixture and store the liquid in a cool, dark place.
