If you live in somewhere very rural the rainwater is most likely going to be the cleanest water next to a natural spring. However if your in a highly industrialized area you may want to collect rainwater and test ph and ppm lvls to make sure its stable enough to feed to your plants.

As long as its stabil, It may be dirty and not drinkable but if its not overly acidic (ph) or extremely hard (ppm) I would say it will be very beneficial, and natural. However if its acidic I would get a rain bucket to collect it, PH it down, if its hard, filter it a bit to lower the PPM, but I wouldn't go for 0ppm as alot of the minerals in natural water can be very beneficial to plant life.
