AYou can just buy rose water. Making it from scratch is not worth it.

It is much easier to purchase it. I am a "full-blooded do-it-yourselfer" who loves to do things from scratch. That being said, a number of years ago I purchased a small still as part of a "make my own perfume" phase. Well, I learned really quickly that it took more rose petals than my whole rose garden had to distill rose essence.  I ended up putting the still aside and just made rose beads. They made a lovely, fragrant necklace, but for the Turkish Delight I was making, I ended up using commercial rose water.

Most sri lankan/Indian grocery stores will have  rosewater essence/flavouring. (star brand). you also get the "queens" brand rosewater in the super markets in the isle where they sell cake ingredients, colouring etc.
