Love Roses? Love Perfume? Why not make your own rose oil spray? Roses are cleansing, hydrating and have a few special anti-aging properties! In a few easy steps you’ll have an abundant supply of fragrance, not to mention good smelling times!
You’ll need the following:
- Twelve freshly picked roses
- A spray bottle
- A pipette
- Some ribbon
- A large pot with a glass lid
- A small glass bowl
- Distilled Water
- AND A BRICK!
Step One: Pluck off all the petals of the roses. Obviously the more fragrant the petals the more fragrant the spray!
Step Two: Put the brick in the pot and place it on the gas heater. To do this the brick must obviously fit the pot! Add all the rose petals in to cover the area around the brick.
Step Three: Pour the distilled water in until half of the brick is underwater then place the glass bowl on top of the brick.
Step Four: Place the glass lid on top of the pot however place it upside down and bring to boil.
Step Five: The water will evaporate and fall into the bowl and that is what is in fact your rose water!
Step Six: After about 30 minutes of boiling, grab the pipette and transfer all the liquid from the glass bowl into your spray bottle.
Step Seven: Store in your fridge! It can last up to seven days.
