anyone know if rosewater is a raw product -- i used to use it in some desserts, very exotic tasting!

thanks for the link. in reading it, i began to wonder about essential oils. i know that gabriel cousens uses them in some recipes. are they raw?
also, to get that rosewater flavor, what do you think about making a strong sun tea with dehydrated rose petals?
many blessings to all!

also, to get that rosewater flavor, what do you think about making a strong sun tea with dehydrated rose petals? Probably, and I think it would be fun to try. One note, I have found that cold water infusions work equally well in or out of the sun. so "sun tea" can be made without any sun at all.

thank you -- as always you are so helpful!
living in florida, sunshine is abundant :) but it's nice to know it's not necessary!
when i get some organic rose petals (in case anyone is unaware, non-organic roses are one of the most heavily sprayed "crops"), i'll give it a try and report back.
