Fresh Flower Petal Perfume

Author: Stephanie Pollard

Materials

  • 1 cup fresh flower petals
  • 5 drops essential oil
  • 1/2 cup vodka
  • 3 cups distilled water
  • Glass jar
  • Glass spray bottle

Instructions

  • Decide what scent you're going for. This is a great time to scope out your garden (or head to a friend’s house and ask to use some of her flowers) and play with different fragrance combinations.
  • Place flower petals in a glass jar and cover with vodka. Let sit for 24 hours.
  • Using a spoon, mash the petals to release the oils, then add the distilled water. Cover and let sit for another 7 days. Every couple days, check on your concoction and use a spoon to mash the petals even further.
  • Strain the mixture into a glass perfume bottle and store in the fridge when you're not using it.
  • To use, shake the mixture to blend the oils and spritz on pulse points.
