Note: This recipe will leave a white nose "lifeguard style."
1 Tbs zinc oxide
1 1/2 tsp light sesame oil
1 Tbs rosewater
Mix together the zinc oxide and sesame oil. Heat the mixture gently, using a double boiler, and stir well to mix. Remove from heat and slowly add the rosewater, as you continue stirring. Allow to cool completely, and store in a clean container with a tight lid, in the fridge. Yield: 2 oz. Keeps: Up to 10 days in the fridge.
1 C. rose petals
1/2 C. rubbing alcohol
1 1/2 C. water
Simmer rose petals in water for 10 minutes. Strain. Add alcohol (optional, but acts as a preservative. See Note.). Keeps in fridge for up to 2 weeks with alcohol, or, 1 week without. Note: Rosewater without a bit of alcohol will quickly develop a residue on its surface. If you don't wish to use rubbing alcohol, you may substitute Vodka.
