To start with it, firstly we need rosewater. Either you can buy any herbal rosewater to use for this recipe or prepare your own. Because we are making a purely homemade cooling spray, why not make our rosewater that too very easily. For the rosewater take some rose petals in a sauce pan and fill it with water so that the rose petals are all covered up properly with water. Lower the heat as the petals start losing their color. Lastly, drain the liquid into a jar, store it and let it cool.
Now, when our rosewater is ready, we can proceed. The first step for making homemade refreshing cooling spray is to cut the cucumber into small pieces and blend it in a blender. When it becomes the pulp, pour it into a cheese cloth covered up on a bowl. Now tightly squeeze out the juice from the cloth into the bowl. Then add a teaspoon of aloe vera gel, one tablespoon rosewater and squeeze half of a lemon juice into the bowl.
Mix it well and if you feel the aloe vera gel is not mixed in properly you can mix this solution once again in a blender so that the aloe vera gel blends well. Now fill it in a spray bottle. This spray can be used up to a week. You can store this in refrigerator and shake it well before using. You can use this cucumber cooling spray three times in a day.
You can also experiment with replacing rosewater with coconut water or you can try adding different essential oils to it as per your choice, although this spray has a wonderful aroma. You can omit the lemon juice if you have sensitive skin. This homemade refreshing cooling spray will leave you with soft and smooth skin.

This cucumber cooling spray will give you cool and soothing effect in hottest of summers.

Why to buy expensive creams and lotions that ask you spend loads of bucks and do no good to your skin, instead leave you with skin issues?
