Sweet Smelling Roses

Hello Friends!  Today I'd like to share with you what we've done with some wild roses that we picked around our place.

We decided to make some rose water with some of the petals, following some instructions we found online.  We also poured some into ice cube trays and froze them to see if that would help preserve it longer than just putting it in the fridge.

The petals were all removed from the main flower stems and then the stems were discarded.  They smelled so amazing and it was interesting that the rose water came out a lovely yellow when the flowers were pink?  But it smells so delightful and we'll be spritzing it on bedding and perhaps even using in a facial toner as well.  Do you use rose water?   How do you use it?


To just enjoy some rose scent, put a rose in a jar floating in a bit of water and it smells so pretty and lasts a long time.
One of the joys of summertime!
Thanks for dropping by!
