Hi Eesha,

Gulkand is the by-product of this recipe. When you strain the petals for the syrup the petals you collect in the strainer is the Gulkand.

Hi Priyanka,

If you maintain the roses in your garden and don't spray pesticides on them, then you can use the roses from your garden as long as they are free of diseases. Hope that helps. Anvita
